All employers utilizing UMKC Law resources for recruiting students and alumni must execute an agreement to our Law Student Employment Policy. The policy states the following: American Bar Association standards provide that a student may not work in excess of 20 hours per week while attending a law school on a full-time basis (13 or more credit hours per semester). This restriction also applies during the summer if the student is enrolled for summer session in five or more credit hours. Students enrolled in their first year of law study are strongly encouraged to refrain from outside employment.
