UMKC School of Law has a track record of producing some of the most well-respected and successful solo and small firm lawyers in the country. Through its innovative curriculum and Solo and Small Firm Institute, more than 150 graduates have received substantial training in this area. The Incubator takes the existing programs one step further by creating a facility that provides hands-on assistance to recent graduates who choose to enter solo or small firm practice.
The Incubator is uniquely positioned to satisfy the needs of recent graduates seeking to start their own firms. Developed with assistance from The Missouri Bar and the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association’s Solo Practitioner/Small Firms committee, the program will offer affordable office space, an office assistant, experienced mentor attorneys on site and guidance in managing a legal practice. The site is well placed, located next door to the entrepreneurial programs at 4747 Troost, across from global Kauffman Foundation of Entrepreneurship and provides valuable legal opportunity to the underserved Troost Avenue corridor.
