ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) – St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch spoke to law students on the University of Missouri campus Tuesday.

Some students who attended the lecture say McCulloch did not answer their questions directly, which is not much different than what several community members have said over the last few months.

Many people are saying that McCulloch's appearance was unfairly kept from the public until days before. The dean of Missouri's Law School denied those claims to the Columbia Missourian Newspaper.

Roughly 40 protesters gathered outside the law school while McCulloch spoke.

Despite the commotion outside the building, McCulloch spoke of the lessons learned by the Darren Wilson case.

“We need to communicate with the public a lot more than we did. Now, there are certain rules involved, I can't go out and talk about evidence on a particular case, but I don't mean as the case is still unfolding, but I think I need to go out and prosecutors need to get out,” McCulloch said. “I know we do a lot of that we just need to get out more.”

The student chapter of the Missouri Association of Prosecuting Attorneys hosted the event. The member of the organization says 140 seats were available only to law students, faculty and staff.

No media was allowed inside the room for McCulloch's lecture.
