Eagleton U.S. Courthouse, 111 South 10th St., with observation of a live courtroom and sessions with judges and other legal professionals. Afternoon sessions at the St. Louis Fed at One Federal Reserve Bank Plaza, Broadway and Locust St., included presentations by research economists, lesson and activity demonstrations, and tours of the new and award-winning Inside the Economy® Museum.
