Inns of UMKC
The original Inns of London were intended to be a place where students lived and studied together. They provided a place to learn as an apprentice lawyer, a place to eat, a place to study and prepare cases and occasionally argue real cases. Experience tells us that approach is still relevant today.
The Inns of UMKC program attempts to address students’ need for additional guidance outside the classroom from faculty and members of the local legal community. The program stems from an understanding that students benefit from consultation regarding matters such as the stress of law school, professionalism, the challenges presented by a career in the practice of law, summer clerkships and post-graduation employment and judicial clerkships.
Students select the Inn that corresponds with their interests. Inn masters organize meetings in cooperation with law school administration.
