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.
Professor Mitchell, an interdisciplinary scholar whose research focuses on the criminal justice system, specifically the collateral consequences of a criminal conviction, joined the University of Missouri School of Law faculty in 2006. He has served as a Missouri Supreme Court Faculty Fellow researching ex-offender reentry in Missouri. Prior to joining the faculty, he was a Scholar in Residence in the Department of Sociology at the University of Colorado at Boulder and served as a law clerk to the Honorable Andre M. Davis, formerly of the U.S. District Court. He has been recognized for his teaching - Gold Chalk Award (2009), and his contributions outside the law school - Legion of Black Collegians Minority Faculty and Staff Appreciation Award (2011). In 2012, he earned his doctorate in Sociology from the University of Pennsylvania with his dissertation entitled, "Unintended Consequences?: An Interdisciplinary Exploration of the Obstacles that Prevent Successful Ex-Offender Reentry and Reintegration and the Societal Impact." He is an affiliate member with the MU Black Studies Program and a Policy Research Scholar with the MU Institute for Public Policy.
