School of Law (UMKC)

 

UMKC School of Law provides academic and professional training to students seeking careers in law. Our faculty are outstanding scholars who have extensive practice experience. Faculty at UMKC are actively engaged with students both inside and outside the classroom. Our classes are relatively small (by law school standards) and many of our substantive courses incorporate simulations and service learning opportunities. Our faculty and students are collegial and the school provides many opportunities for interaction and development of close personal relationships that will last throughout one's career. We like to think of ourselves as the urban, public law school with the small, liberal arts feel.

As a Law School, we build on a strong tradition of advocacy, civic engagement and academic excellence - a program that has not only produced some of the region's best lawyers and judges, but one that has also trained a U.S. Supreme Court Justice (Charles Whittaker) and an American President (Harry Truman). We embrace and foster a collegial, collaborative model of professional education and maintain an intellectual and cultural environment that fosters broad thinking, local and global awareness and creative problem-solving.
