The MU School of Law offers a collegial environment, reinforced by a small student body and a low faculty-student ratio. The intimacy of this setting, coupled with reasonable cost, consistently high bar passage rates, a network of alumni around the globe and access to top scholars in the legal world, make MU Law one of the best values in the nation.
You are responsible for planning your own legal education in addition to those courses deemed so fundamental that they are required by the law faculty for graduation. This planning process should be initiated early and reviewed from time to time in light of your changing interests and demonstrated capacities. The Dean and faculty are always available for consultation regarding your educational program.
Each student should become familiar with the subjects covered in any bar examination they may contemplate taking, as well as courses of study which may be required by a particular jurisdiction. Such knowledge may aid materially in program planning in the area of electives.
Another important consideration is the nature of practice you are considering. The law school attempts to make available to students an array of useful elective courses.
