National Jurist magazine has named UMKC School of Law a “Tuition Winner,” ranking 12th in the nation for school’s showing the lowest tuition raises by dollar amounts. The article will appear in its spring issue.
The magazine reports that public schools have raised tuition by more than 150 percent and tuition for residents has increased from $7,790 in 2000 to more than $20,000 in 2010. UMKC’s resident tuition has only increased $6,104 in that 10-year span.
The School of Law keeps costs low in order to ensure that it maintains its role as a model urban public law school that delivers excellent legal education, serves as an intellectual leader in law and increases access to justice for the community.
