Legal issues are never far from the headlines and in many cases, they are the headlines.

The Missouri Legislature recently ended its session and passed some bills worth considering from a legal perspective.  One bill bars the implementation of Agenda 21, a non-binding United Nations plan which promotes sustainable development.  Another would bar Sharia law in Missouri.

Host Don Marsh talked with a panel of legal experts to explain those issues and more. 

The panelists included:

  • William Freivogel, J.D., Director, School of Journalism; Associate Professor, Paul Simon Public Policy Institute, Southern Illinois University – Carbondale
  • Mark Smith, J.D., Associate Vice Chancellor and Director, The Career Center, Washington University in St. Louis
  • Rebecca Hollander-Blumoff , J.D., Associate Professor of Law, Washington University in St. Louis

Other topics included:

  • Lawsuits filed against local grocery store chain Schnucks because of breach of customers’ credit and debit cards
  • The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision regarding St. Louis based Monsanto
  • Recently passed gun laws
