Shook to Host Missouri Coalition Right to Counsel Training

Shook, Hardy & Bacon will host a statewide training session presented by the Missouri State Public Defender (MSPD) and the Missouri Coalition for the Right to Counsel (MCRC) October 4-5, 2018. Attorneys will earn two days of free CLE qualified training in trial skills and criminal law and procedure presented by the MSPD. Following completion of the program, attorneys can select from pending felony jury cases, representing an indigent defendant in the circuit courts of Jackson County and the County and City of St. Louis.

MCRC is a nonprofit collaboration created by the members of the Missouri Bar and the state’s public defender system to provide courtroom training to early-career private practice attorneys by encouraging the attorneys to represent public defender clients.
