UMKC School of Law is an urban campus located just south of the beautiful Country Club Plaza.  The Law School’s address is 500 E. 52nd Street (northeast corner of 52nd and Oak).

For those of you without a car, the conference will be providing transportation to and from the hotel to the law school in the morning and after the conference sessions have ended each day. For those of you leaving on Saturday, we will do our best to assist you with your transportation to the airport from the Law School. Additional information regarding those plans will be forthcoming.
