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.
PROF. RICHARD REUBEN QUOTED IN ADRWORLD.COM
Prof. Richard Reuben was recently quoted in an ADRworld.com article about Dockser et al. v. Schwatrzberg, No. 05-1273, Jan. 3, 2005, decided by U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, which held that arbitrators rather than courts should decide the number of neutrals that should serve on an arbitration panel. Prof. Reuben concluded that “While it does not cut new law, the opinion does provide greater clarity for parties about matters that fall within the procedural arbitrability doctrine, and that’s always helpful for the practicing bar.” To read the article, MU faculty and students can access ADRWorld.com at http://law.missouri.edu/library/resources/.
