Have you ever wondered what goes on in the federal courthouse, and how it affects you and your family?


The Judges of the U.S. District Court of the Eastern District of Missouri will visit with adult civic, service and professional organizations interested in learning more about the federal judicial branch- sometimes called the least understood branch of government.


The Judicial Speakers Bureau offers free, engaging presentations designed to educate and inform adults in the community about the federal courts.




A Federal Judge from the Eastern District of Missouri will attend your meeting, and lead an informative presentation. Time will be allowed for Q & A.




Presentations can be adjusted to fit 30, 45, or 60 minute schedules. There is a basic format, which can also be tailored to a specific topic at your request. PowerPoint capabilities are required.




Call the Office of Public Education and Community Outreach for more information and available dates.
