Parents Attending Law School

PALS is an advocacy, networking, and support group for students who care for dependents. We strive to provide a casual forum for parent support, sponsor family-friendly events, help students find resources they need while attending law school, and answer questions they have that are unique to students caring for family. Activities may include:

  • Family Game Night
  • Networking Lunch
  • Trip to Port Discovery, Science Museum, or Art Museum
  • Toy Exchange

Other needs we strive to address:

  • On-site childcare for UMB-related events
  • "It Takes a Village" co-operative study groups

Need a lactation room? 

The law school has two lactation rooms which are only available to law students. Reach out to Amanda Barnes in the Student Affairs Office (S. 280) for access.
