The Missouri Plan

This 10 minute video produced, by The Missouri Bar, explains how the nonpartisan court plan works. It explores the rich history that inspired Missourians to be the first in the nation to adopt the system. It also demonstrates the clear contrast of how this least political and corruption free system Missourians benefit from today compares with other states without the plan.

Mission Statement

Membership in the Missouri Organization of Defense Lawyers is open to Missouri lawyers who devote a substantial amount of their time to the representation of defendants and potential defendants in civil litigation either as trial lawyers or as lawyers otherwise directly involved with the defense of civil litigation.

  • To cooperate with other groups in promoting seminars, lectures and other educational opportunities in matters of common legal interest to the bar and/or the public;
  • To promote among all lawyers involved in civil litigation the highest standards of professionalism and to encourage civility and courtesy in the conduct of trials and related proceedings;
