Mark Twain Law Students Association
“Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society.”
Mark Twain, More Maxims of Mark, 1927
The Mark Twain Law Student Association aspires to promote professionalism and classic, unpretentious style at SLU Law. Building on SLU’s reputation as the oldest law school west of the Mississippi, Mark Twain embraces tradition, extols manners and civility, and believes that one’s character, reputation, and knowledge obtained through a professional education extend beyond the classroom to the social scene. Always affable, never arrogant, The Mark Twain Law Student Association aims to prepare students for every aspect of professional life – whether it be the office or the fundraiser, the golf course or the duck blind, the wine shop or the barbecue pit.
