As a general rule, students are required to complete 6 semesters of residence at one law school in order to earn a J.D. degree. Under exceptional circumstances, however, a student may be allowed to satisfy up to 2 semesters of this requirement by attending another ABA accredited law school as a visiting student.
Visiting students are not considered candidates for degrees from Mizzou.
Students who wish to visit Mizzou Law must submit the following information. We encourage you to apply through LSAC as your application will require certain material you have already submitted to them.
- Law school application and the $60 application fee
- A brief letter explaining why you would like to visit
The following must be sent directly to the admissions office at Mizzou Law following your final semester before visiting.
- Official transcripts of all law school work attempted or completed
- A letter from the Dean of the law school you are currently attending stating:
- you are in good standing
- you are eligible to return to that school
- your class ranking
- that they will accept the transfer of the credits you will earn at Mizzou
- if there are any specific courses that you needed to take while at Mizzou to complete your graduation requirements
- an official copy of your law school transcript
