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.
Since 1872, the School of Law has been the destination for students seeking a strong, well-rounded legal education.
Your gifts to the University's For All We Call Mizzou campaign support student scholarships, faculty activities, the Law Library, special programs and the Law School Foundation Endowment.
These gifts have allowed us to:
As state support has decreased, the school has turned to private funding to enhance curricula and programs, and to continue a tradition of innovation.
Now we strive to raise a total of $17 million to benefit the School of Law. We seek funds to help students with the increasing amounts of loans that they must incur to finance their law school educations. We also seek private gifts to allow us to continue to recruit and retain faculty of the very highest quality.
Your contributions will improve the law students' second home, the Law Library, by providing the technology that today's law students, faculty and the legal community at large need and expect.
Thank you for generously giving your time, talents and funds to the School of Law to benefit our students, and thank you for helping us reach our $17 million goal in the For All We Call Mizzou campaign.
The average indebtedness of a graduate who received loans for law school totals nearly $60,000. Our goal is to raise $2.5 million in private gifts.
Our faculty members not only teach in the classroom, but also conduct research, write articles and books, and speak on matters of concern to the legal profession and the public. Our goal is to raise $1.25 million for faculty support.
Our library serves as a federal depository and serves students, faculty, alumni, Missouri citizens and patrons across the country. Our goal is to raise $1.25 million for the law library.
