Welcome to MMACJA!
The Missouri Municipal and Associate Circuit Judges Association was formed in 1965 by a small group of judges who realized the need for our courts to be more uniform and professional. At that time, there were over 900 known municipal courts throughout the State and probably many more that were not accounted for. The Association was originally called the Missouri Municipal and Magistrate Judges Association and was changed in 1979 to the Missouri Municipal and Associate Circuit Judges' Association when the court reform act of 1978 abolished the old magistrate courts.

It should be noted that this order is voluntary and is not intended to be an official document of the MMACJA,. Its history and purpose are set forth in Judge McShane's letter to the 80 municipal courts of St.Louis County, in response to a letter of concern by the SLU Law School Clinic and Arch City Defenders, a defense firm for indigents.
