This Committee enhances the public’s understanding of the law through community education and outreach. It
presents MSBA’s two most successful, ongoing public service projects: its series of 24 public awareness legal
information guides, which are disseminated to the public free of charge, and its Speakers’ Bureau, through
which 250 volunteer attorneys go out into the community and educate the public about the law. The Committee
also sponsored its May Law Day program, a lawyer/student/teacher conference highlighting its special Positive
Messaging Video and Poster Competition on “No Courts, No Justice, No Freedom,” in conjunction with CLREP. It
also hosted, through a partnership with the Young Lawyers Section, nine community service projects as part of
the One Bar, One Community project.
