The School of Law, a charter member of the Association of American Law Schools, opened its current facility in 1988. The building, known as John K. Hulston Hall, is the home to classrooms, libraries, student offices, lounges, dining areas, computer labs, and a modern courtroom.

The ABA-accredited School of Law offers the following certificate options: the Center for the Digital Globe's Graduate Certificate, Certificate in Dispute Resolution, the EU Graduate Certificate Program, and the Certificate in Journalism. The School of Law is recognized as a leader in the field of dispute resolution and aims to produce graduates who are prepared to effectively serve clients, address ethical issues, and foster justice.

With a student to faculty ratio of 16:1, students receive individualized attention and guidance throughout their legal studies. Practical skills are developed largely through the School of Law's clinical programs in the areas of criminal prosecution, child protection, domestic violence in juvenile and civil courts, and mediation. Externship opportunities are also available for students throughout Missouri and beyond.

Student-edited publications include the Missouri Law Review, the Journal of Dispute Resolution, and the Journal of Environmental and Sustainability Law.

With nearly 30 student organizations, students are encouraged to pursue co-curricular activities. These organizations include the Women's Law Association, the Student Animal Legal Defense Fund, the Student Bar Association, the Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys, the Historical and Theatrical Trial Society, and others.

The School of Law also offers study abroad opportunities in England, South Africa, and Austria.
