Club & Society

Student organizations are a vibrant part of the intellectual and social environments at the MU School of Law. They provide LL.M. students with opportunities to enhance their professional and personal development through programs and activities, and intellectual, cultural and volunteer opportunities. For example, past LL.M. students have consulted with the editors of our Journal of Dispute Resolution on particular articles, served as judges during student competitions such as “Mediation Advocacy,” and networked with JD-student members of the Alternative Dispute Resolution Organization (ADRO) and International Law Student Association (ILSA), among others. See a list of student organizations.
