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 was the first U.S. law school to offer an LL.M. exclusively focused on dispute resolution. MU consistently ranks as one of the top law schools in dispute resolution.
Our scholars generate important work influencing dispute resolution theory and practice around the world. We have one of the largest collections of full-time law faculty who focus on dispute resolution, publishing many leading articles and texts on dispute resolution.
Our program blends theoretical analysis, practitioner skills, and systems design work.
Our classes are small, creating a close community among faculty and students, forming lifelong bonds for networking and future collaboration. Classes generally are limited to LL.M. students.
Our student body is diverse - by age, race, nationality, legal background - which enriches the level of discussion inside and outside the classroom.
