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 School of Law's progressive approach to legal education produces leaders of the bar, bench and government. The accomplishments of our alumni strengthen our reputation, which in turn attracts applications for the next generation of outstanding attorneys and judges.
But the cost of attending law school has increased substantially over the past decade. More than 90 percent of our students must borrow money to pay for school. These students graduate with an average of nearly $60,000 in loans for law school, and often have additional undergraduate and personal debt.
Increases in the School of Law's endowed scholarship support will help us reach our goal of not only attracting the best students, but also making education in law accessible to all qualified applicants.
