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.
We encourage an in-person visit for any student interested in Mizzou Law. Seeing our facilities and meeting our people are the best ways to know if the law school is the right fit for your legal education. However, we understand that distance or financial constraints may preclude a prospective student from making a visit to the University of Missouri campus. We offer a select number of appointments to prospective students by Skype. If you are interested in visiting with us by video chat, please contact the Office of Admissions.
Schedule a Visit
One of the best ways to decide if a law school is right for you is to visit the school. When you visit you have the opportunity to sit in on a law school class, meet current law students, tour our facility, learn about our programs and resources, and will get a good feel for the daily atmosphere here at MU Law.
We would recommend visiting while classes are in session, so that you may opt to sit in on a law school class and because tours are primarily given by current law students. We do not schedule individual visits during school holidays, on weekends, one week before or during our two weeks of final examinations each semester or August 1st through the start of classes due to first year orientation. Please refer to our calendar for exact holiday and examination dates. We apologize for any inconvenience.
There are several options for visiting MU's School of Law:
Individual visits are available to prospective students Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. (excluding certain times of the school year, see above italics). Students have the opportunity to visit with the Admissions Office, tour the law school with a current law student and sit in on a law class. Students can schedule an appointment for an individual visit by calling the Law School Admissions Office in 103 Hulston Hall, (573) 882-6042 or 1-888-MULAW4U or via e-mail at email@example.com.
Open House Events
The School of Law hosts an Open House event once per year in the Fall. Students start with an overview of the admissions process, a real first year law class by a law professor, a question and answer session with a panel of our current students and an optional tour of the school. Please see the list of upcoming events portion of our website for Open House dates. (RSVP is required.)
The School of Law participates in many external law/graduate/informational events at various undergraduate institutions and national forums organized by the Law School Admission Council. Please check our "Events" page for information on our upcoming external events.
