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.
MU Law School hosts a number of scholarly activities for faculty and students. The Faculty Colloquium series brings well-regarded academics from all over the world to give scholarly presentations on a wide variety of subjects to the faculty. The series includes a speaker exchange workshop, which allows our faculty to travel to participating schools and present their work. Our internal faculty workshops provide an opportunity for our faculty to present their works-in-progress to their peers prior to publication. Additionally, we host a number of symposia and conferences throughout the year that bring together academics, students, and practitioners to explore cutting edge legal topics.
