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.
The exchange of ideas is fundamental to legal education, and the School of Law continually brings exceptional visitors to campus for short periods, including several U.S. Supreme Court justices and Nobel Prize recipients.
The creation of an endowed chair would allow the school to extend these visits to one semester, or perhaps an entire academic year.
Our main priority, of course, is to enhance the professional growth of our faculty members. Through private support for research grants, our law professors may share the results of their work with colleagues throughout the country and with the bench and bar.
