Law Fellowships

The University of Missouri Office of the General Counsel Law Fellowship is a 12-month program that offers two recent graduates of University of Missouri law schools (i.e. UMKC School of Law and the University of Missouri School of Law) the opportunity to work closely with University of Missouri Counsel. 

Through the fellowship, recent graduates are able to gain experience in a variety of legal fields, while simultaneously receiving mentorship on how to further develop and hone their legal skills. Each fellow is individually assigned a diverse range of projects and research assignments on matters handled by the Office of the General Counsel including, but not limited to: labor and employment, litigation, contracts, research, intellectual property, tax and non-profit law, higher education law, privacy, compliance, healthcare, business transactions, construction, real estate, international programs, and general business transactions. 

The fellowship is designed to provide fellows with a breadth of experience in both transactional and litigation matters. As a result, a fellow’s work varies according to his or her assigned project. For example, fellows may engage in legal research and writing, drafting of legal documents and memoranda, advising clients, attending negotiations, mediations, depositions, or hearings, as well as a variety of other activities.

In addition to legal work, the fellows are encouraged to participate in educational opportunities, such as continuing education webinars and symposiums, and they also have the unique opportunity to meet distinguished guest speakers who present at “brown bag lunches.” 

The Office of the General Counsel Law Fellowship is an excellent opportunity for recent law school graduates to obtain invaluable legal experience and exposure, all while learning the nuances of practice from a team of seasoned and highly-skilled legal professionals.
