As a law school, UMKC recognizes the key role pro bono and public service work plays in shaping the professional values of our students. Thus, we have created the Pro Bono Public Service Honors Program (the “Honors Program”). By participating in the voluntary Honors Program, students will receive the benefits of hands-on legal training, the opportunity to develop relationships with lawyers and legal organizations in the community, exposure to various areas of the law, and the satisfaction of making a difference in people’s lives. Students who complete the required number of hours for Honors Program completion will also be recognized at graduation.
For more information on the specifics of the Honors Program, current students should review the Pro Bono Public Service Honors Program Handbook available on Symplicity.
