The UMKC School of Law is student-centered, community-connected, and justice-driven as it helps students become outstanding lawyers, inspiring leaders and principled citizens who make a difference. Our generous alumni and friends continue to make student and faculty support and capital improvements a reality.

You can support the priorities for the School of Law by:

  • Giving to the unrestricted fund to support student scholarships, faculty research stipends, alumni programs, and more.
  • Underwriting programs and practical legal training at our Center for Law Entrepreneurship and Innovation.
  • Supporting student scholarships and bar exam preparation costs – more than 80% of law school students qualify for financial aid.
  • Sponsoring trial team competitions and law student organizations, such as trial practice and moot court (appellate advocacy) competitions.
