Nixon Highlights SLU LAW Visit, Clinic Work

March 10, 2015


Missouri Governor Jay Nixon highlighted his visit to SLU LAW last fall and lauded efforts by the SLU LAW legal clinics in his address to the Missouri Bar Association on Monday. 

Nixon visited Scott Hall on Nov. 17, 2014 to have a discussion about the work clinic faculty and students are doing to push for municipal court reform in St. Louis County. 

During Monday's spring meeting of the Missouri Bar, Nixon praised the work of the SLU LAW Legal Clinics and Arch City Defenders, saying, "They’ve helped bring to light the practices of some municipal courts in the St. Louis region that leave indigent defendants in a downward spiral to financial ruin... far out of proportion to the initial crime."
