Judge Lawrence E. Mooney of the Missouri Court of Appeals, Eastern District, attended the 2005 National Conference on Appellate Justice Nov. 4-6, 2005, in Washington. This conference brought together lawyers, judges, academics and court administrators to consider the challenges and pressures created by the growth of appellate caseloads.
Judge Mooney’s attendance was supported by a scholarship awarded by the State Justice Institute (SJI), a non-profit organization established by federal law to award grants to improve the quality of justice in state courts nationwide; facilitate better coordination between state and federal courts; and foster innovative, efficient solutions to common problems faced by all courts.
