The Law Society

The Law Society was created in 1984 to recognize the strongest financial contributors to the School of Law. Members of The Law Society are preeminent alumni and friends of the School who have pledged themselves to ensure that the educational and professional leadership provided by the School of Law since 1872 will continue for the benefit of future generations.

The power of private philanthropy enables the School of Law to offer academic programs and scholarships that might otherwise be unavailable. It is because of this tremendous support that the administration and faculty may plan for the future.

Individuals are invited to be inducted into The Law Society with gifts or pledges of $25,000 or more, paid over (up to) five consecutive years, as well as planned gifts of $50,000 or more that have been documented as designated for the School of Law.

An annual gala is held which celebrates current and prospective members of The Law Society, with special recognition given to new and elevating members.

Please contact the Mizzou Law Advancement Office, at 573-882-4374 for more information about membership in The Law Society.
