The School of Law offers the traditional JD program, as well as joint degree options in business, tax, and accountancy. Just this year, the School of Law moved to the Robert C. Khayat Law Center, named after the school's former chancellor.

The school, often referred to as Ole Miss Law, is the home to about 34 full-time and adjunct professors and 495 students.



The Mississippi School of Law offers certificate programs in criminal law and also in space law and remote sensing.

Additionally, the School of Law provides its students with access to a variety of centers and clinics that offer a focus on areas ranging from business law to public service. Law centers and program offerings include the Civil Legal Clinic; the Criminal Appeals Program; the Prosecution Externship Program; the Business Regulation Externship; the Croft Institute for International Studies; the Mississippi Innocence Project; the Mississippi Judicial College; the Mississippi Law Research Institute; the National Center for Justice And The Rule of Law; the National Center for Remote Sensing, Air, and Space Law; and the National Sea Grant Law Center.

The School of Law publishes the Mississippi Law Journal and the Journal of Space, which was first published in 1973. The Journal of Space is the world's oldest journal dedicated to space law.

The law school's summer study abroad program in Cambridge was one of the first to receive approval under the ABA's foreign summer program standards. The program, which was established in 1983, is sponsored by Downing College of Cambridge University and the Mississippi School of Law in conjunction with the University of Arkansas-Fayetville School of Law, the University of Tennessee College of Law, and the University of Nebraska College of Law.

Students are further encouraged to explore the School of Law's 16 student organization offerings which include the Business Law Society, the Environmental Law Society, Moot Court, OUTlaw, the Public Interest Law Foundation, and others.

Students are invited to take advantage of the resources provided by the Career Services Office, which operates under the guidance of the director, Kristin Flierl. The mission of the Career Services Office is to assist students and graduates in the process of establishing effective job search skills and developing a path to a fulfilling career.

The School of Law's Dean, Richard Gershon, holds a JD from the University of Tennessee and a LL.M degree in Taxation from the University of Florida. In the past he has served as the dean of both the Charleston School of Law and Texas Wesleyan University School of Law.
