Law Library Hosts Food Drive to Benefit Operation Food Search

Please plan to participate in our canned food drive, co-sponsored with St. Louis Attorneys Against Hunger, an initiative of the Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis (BAMSL), taking place from Monday May 21 through Friday June 29.  All proceeds will go to Operation Food Search, one of the region's largest non-profits focused on distributing food to our neighbors in need.  Food donations are particularly needed during the summer, when children are home from school and not receiving free breakfast and lunch typically provided through Federal nutrition programs.   Please, no glass containers and no ramen noodles. Drop your donations off in the bin located near the library's front desk.  

   

Legal Ethics 2.0

This program will assist lawyers as they navigate ethical issues that are part of any law practice.  Our speaker is Michael Downey, Esq., a legal ethics lawyer and founder of Downey Law Group, LLC.  Downey Law Group, LLC is a firm devoted to legal ethics, lawyer discipline defense and the law of lawyering.
