From the continuing drama surrounding abortion access in Missouri to the investigation of St. Louis Metropolitan Police officers whose racist Facebook posts have been in the spotlight, this month’s Legal Roundtable had much to consider during Wednesday’s St. Louis on the Air.

The conversation touched on a variety of the latest regional as well as national news stories that bring up questions related to sunshine law, the First Amendment and other legal matters.

Joining St. Louis Public Radio’s Jonathan Ahl for the discussion were Bill Freivogel, J.D., professor for the School of Journalism at Southern Illinois University Carbondale; Mark Smith, J.D., associate vice chancellor and dean for Career Services at Washington University; and Brenda Talent, J.D., CEO of the Show-Me Institute.
