At UMKC School of Law, our student emissaries represent the broad range of students admitted each year.

The mission of the emissaries is to promote the School of Law to potential law students, as well as to the public at large, in order to better inform all of the high standards and characteristics that are exemplified by the students, staff, faculty and administration of the Law School.

The emissaries act as liaisons between the admissions staff and entering students by working in the admissions office, contacting newly admitted students, giving tours and organizing the fall orientation.

The emissaries also act as the face of the law school at university and community events throughout the year.
