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 Law Library serves a vital resource for faculty, students, the bar and the bench. It's here that the law is made available to everyone, so the quality of legal collections and resources is an essential component in determining the law school's reputation.
Since the mid-1970s, the size of the School of Law library collection has continued to shrink in relation to its peers. Dramatic increases in the costs for serials, monographs and information technology is partly to blame.
Private giving for endowments will ensure the library's strong future, and gifts for current use will go toward maintaining and enhancing the library holdings.
As a result, the Law Library will serve future generations with distinction.
