The University of Missouri Law School is one of the smaller law schools in the nation – giving our students a real advantage in getting to know their professors and classmates and helping to create a very supportive law school community. In a recent national survey of student satisfaction, MU students rated the Law School 20th in the nation and first among Missouri law schools. This is a law school where students get involved both in the classroom and in many co-curricular activities. In one of our four legal clinics students can draft legislation, work in the prosecuting attorney’s office, represent victims of family violence, or mediate disputes referred from the state and federal courts and governmental agencies. We have an extremely active moot court program, three student-edited legal journals, and student organizations through which you can pursue your interests both within and outside the law.
