UMKC Law welcomes employers who are interested in recruiting our law students and alumni. We are confident that you will find UMKC Law’s current students, recent graduates, and alumni to be well-prepared and trained in practical legal skills. Please review our Employer Guidelines if you wish to engage with our students and alumni. The Professional and Career Development Center offers the following services to employers free of charge.
If you are seeking undergraduates or other students and alumni outside of the law, those positions are better directed to the main-campus UMKC Career Services Office, which you can reach at 816-235-1636 or Roo Career Network.

You can also call or email and we will assist you with posting a position.

Non-Discrimination Policy +All employers utilizing UMKC School of Law resources for recruiting students and alumni must execute an agreement to our Non-Discrimination Policy. Thank you in advance for your cooperation. Please find our Non-Discrimination Policy here.
Law Student Employment Policy +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.
Disabled Student Services +UMKC endeavors to make all activities, programs and services accessible to students with disabilities. A Campus Coordinator for Disabled Student Services is available to arrange for reasonable accommodations. If you need accommodations, it is important that you contact the Coordinator as soon as possible to arrange for providing appropriate documentation and the prescribing of reasonable accommodations in the classroom and for exams.
