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.
Established in 1928, the Law School Foundation raises funds for the school through the generosity of alumni, friends, foundations and corporations.
Governed by a board of trustees, the Foundation has doubled its endowment in the last ten years, in addition to raising $2.9 million to construct Hulston Hall. In 1995, the law school successfully completed a $2.5 million endowment fund drive. This campaign focused on faculty enhancement, student scholarships and the law library.
