Congratulations to Polsinelli's Emma Schuering, who has been selected as a member of the 2015-2016 class of the Missouri Bar Leadership Academy.

The academy is offered to Missouri lawyers who are less than 40 years old or have been admitted to practice for 10 years or fewer, with an emphasis on diversity of ethnicity, culture, gender, area of practice and region within the state. Members of each year's class participate in The Missouri Bar Annual Meeting, Board of Governors meetings, committee meetings and workshops specifically designed for the Leadership Academy. For one year, the class works closely with bar leaders to learn more about The Missouri Bar, cultivate leadership skills and develop a public service project which the class takes full responsibility for completing before the end of the class year. Upon graduation of the program, members commit to serve the bar in an active capacity for two years. 

As an associate in Polsinelli's national Commercial Litigation Practice, Emma Schuering brings a formidable skill-set having clerked for nearly two years for the Missouri Court of Appeals, Southern District.
