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.

Prof. John Lande chaired the Planned Early Dispute Resolution (PEDR) Task Force of the ABA Section of Dispute Resolution, which recently published a User Guide to help businesses plan for and manage disputes at the earliest appropriate time. Prof. Lande was the lead author of the User Guide, which was co-sponsored by the American Arbitration Association, International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution, and the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Service. The PEDR website includes a podcast of his presentation for the ABA Section of Litigation describing how lawyers can help clients get good results – and make a good living. The website also includes powerpoint presentations for business and legal groups to explain the basic concepts of this project. Prof. Lande’s book, Lawyering with Planned Early Negotiation: How You Can Get Good Results for Clients and Make Money, provided the impetus for this project.
