At UMKC, the law school experience extends far beyond the classroom. We offer many ways for students to get involved through organizations matching a variety of interests within the law school and the larger university community. These organizations are listed at the law school's website.
The UMKC School of Law offers several opportunities for students to develop research, writing and editorial skills through membership on the staff of one of the law school's three journals: the UMKC Law Review, the Urban Lawyer, and the Journal of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.
UMKC Law School has established a strong tradition of excellence in national and regional skills competitions. Students may participate as a member of one of the law school's various lawyering skills competition teams.
Clinics and Internships
Through its various clinical opportunities the law school serves the urban community and provides important opportunities for students to gain valuable experience. More information can be found at the law school's website.
Through its study-abroad opportunities, students at the law school can gain valuable global perspectives on the law. Summer study programs permit students to visit China or Ireland and Wales while semester-long study abroad programs are available for students desiring more in-depth experiences abroad.
