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.
Hi! My name is Luke Weissler and I am originally from Springfield, Missouri. I attended St. Louis University and graduated with a degree in accounting in 2008. During my senior year at SLU, I knew I wanted to go to law school, but I also had the desire to take some time before continuing with my education to make a difference for others. So, I applied to become a corps member with Teach for America and I spent the next two years teaching sixth grade math on the boarder in south Texas.
While trying to decide where to attend law school, I visited the MU campus, spoke with students and faculty, and instantly loved the feeling that I got while I was here. It was obvious that the students were extremely supportive of each other and that the professors made themselves available to help students in any way they could. I was also really encouraged by the expansive alumni base throughout Missouri, and I didn’t mind the idea of coming out of law school with substantially less debt than I would at some other universities.
It’s easy to feel overwhelmed at the difficult process of picking a law school. I would love to help make the decision easier for you in any way I can. Feel free to contact me with any questions and I hope to see you soon.
