At UMKC School of Law, we are student centered, community connected, justice driven.

"My parents taught me to respect myself and others, and most of all to stand for truth and for what is right no matter what. In law school I learned to be fair to all and to administer the law equally, without corruption, favor, greed or prejudice, so that is what I did."
