From the Kansas City International Airport, take I-70 to the South Lawrence exit (202). Go south on Iowa Street to 15th Street and turn east. The law school is at the southeast corner of 15th Street and Burdick Drive. Visitor parking is available in the garage southeast of the law school, adjacent to Allen Fieldhouse, for $1.50 per hour.
