Life after graduation from UMKC begins with the bar examination, and the School of Law prepares it’s students for success by offering a prep course. In 2013 alone our graduates held a 92.5% bar pass rate, something we take great pride in. Our recent graduates hold a very high employment rate as well, 90.2% in 2012, which is due, in part, to the efforts of the Career Services Office, which assists students and alumni with their career search strategies.

It is UMKC’s mission to guide individuals through the process of moving from legal scholar to practicing attorney and it is something we take very seriously. We are dedicated to helping our students achieve their career goals and a student’s relationship with UMKC does not end after graduation. The School of Law goes to great lengths to facilitate alumni involvement and we will continue to support our colleagues after they become practicing attorneys.
