Founded 1893 | ABA Accredited 1923

Established in 1911, The University of Montana (UM) School of Law is located in Missoula on the west slopes of the Rocky Mountains. Accredited by the ABA since 1923, UM School of Law has the unique distinction of being one of the smallest law schools in the country. With a total student population of about 250, UM School of Law is able to offer students highly personalized instruction in a friendly, supportive, collegial learning environment. The academic mission of the School of Law is embodied in the five principles that govern the structure of its curriculum: (1) knowledge of the law; (2) ability to apply legal rules to solve problems; (3) ability to use lawyering skills; (4) perspective on the societal role and responsibility of lawyers; and (5) sensitivity to the dynamics of social and interpersonal interaction.

As the School of Law enters its second century of preparing students for the practice of law and community leadership, the school has recently renovated and expanded its facilities. Students enjoy new classrooms, formal and informal study spaces, clinic and student-group offices, and student lounge and community areas.

In addition to serving as the legal center of the state of Montana, Missoula is situated halfway between Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks, and is surrounded by several of the largest designated wilderness areas in the continental United States. The city is known for its outdoor opportunities and quality of life.
