UMKC, Bar to offer continuing legal education

Tuesday, January 15, 2013 | 8:58 a.m. CST

KANSAS CITY — A new partnership will create the largest continuing legal education provider in the Kansas City area.

The University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law and the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association announced Monday that they're working together to teach attorneys the latest in topics such as ethics.

UMKC's director of continuing legal education, Daniel McCarroll, will serve as director for the collaboration. Local bar association executive director Vickie Schatz will be the manager.

UMKC Law School Dean Ellen Suni says the decision to combine the two competitors will "make Kansas City a model for economical, efficient excellence in continuing legal education."

The Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association serves about 5,000 members in seven Missouri counties and two counties in Kansas.
