House Bill Designed to Modify Qualifications to Practice Law and Become a Judge

02 Mar 2016 5:50 PM | Anonymous

Missouri House Representative Robert Ross (R - District 142) has introduced a bill that specifies once a person has served two years as a member of the General Assembly, such person is qualified to practice law as an attorney and to serve as an associate or circuit judge in Missouri without further education requirements or other qualifications being met.  This bill was read twice on February 24, 2016.  As of March 1, 2016, the bill is not currently scheduled for hearing or on the House calendar.
