Local attorneys offer students free legal advice
I want to take a moment to highlight one of the many services available to our students.
Bearisters is a free legal advice program available to Missouri State students. This program offers students an opportunity to meet with a local attorney during regularly scheduled office hours in Plaster Student Union free of charge.
This program is made possible through volunteer efforts by local attorneys who help students manage lease issues, immigration questions, traffic matters and a wide variety of other legal issues free of charge. The program is a partnership between the Springfield Metropolitan Bar Association, the dean of students office and the Student Government Association.
Students can make an appointment with an attorney through the Bearisters program by calling the dean of students office at 417-836-5527.
You can find out more information about Bearisters and other similar services on the dean of students webpage.
Thanks for all you do for Missouri State!
