The University of Missouri - Kansas City School of Law (UMKC Law) Career Services Office (CSO) provides resources to students and graduates throughout the process of acquiring legal employment. Whether you are seeking a part-time or summer law clerk position to add practical experience to your legal training or a full-time associate position to commence your post-graduate legal career, we are available to help. Job and internship opportunities for students and graduates are listed on our password-protected online database, Symplicity.
As a National Association for Law Placement (NALP) member law school, UMKC Law CSO provides job search resources to students and graduates of other law schools in exchange for reasonable access to those schools' career resources for students and graduates of UMKC Law. Any UMKC Law student or graduate seeking employment in another geographic region should schedule a meeting with a CSO representative to initiate a reciprocity request. Students or graduates of other ABA-accredited NALP member law schools should initiate reciprocity requests to UMKC Law through their own career services offices. Please refer to UMKC School of Law's reciprocity policy for more information.
Graduates of other ABA-accredited NALP member law schools who are only seeking guest access to online job postings may obtain a six-month guest subscription to Symplicity for the price of $60. Interested individuals should send a letter with the subject line "Guest Symplicity Subscription Request" and a $60 check payable to UMKC School of Law to the following address:
Career Services Office
UMKC School of Law
5100 Rockhill Road, Law 028
Kansas City, MO 64110
The body of the letter should include the name, email address, graduation year, and the name of the J.D. granting institution. In the alternative, interested individuals can request a subscription and pay by credit card (Visa, MasterCard or Discover) over the phone by calling CSO assistant Maggie Porras at (816) 235-1668.
