School of Law Ambassador

Joe Conlon, 2L

How many lawyers does it take to screw in a light bulb? Three. One to screw in the light bulb, one to shake the ladder, and one to sue the ladder company.
Hello future Tigers! My name is Joe Conlon and I’ve just finished my first year here at Mizzou Law. After growing up in St. Louis and venturing to Kansas City for undergrad, I decided to try out the middle of Missouri and all it has to offer. I’m from a large family, of which I’m very proud, and they are very loud. Before coming to Mizzou I attended Rockhurst University where I majored in Economics, Political Science, Theology, and Procrastination.

I knew I wanted to go to law school after undergrad, but I wasn’t exactly sure where. After applying to a wide variety of schools, I narrowed down my options and Mizzou was the obvious choice. Its great academic prestige, small class size, and low tuition all made it very attractive, but the students and admissions staff sealed the deal. They answered all my questions and really made me feel like they wanted me here at Mizzou. Ever since my first day here at Hulston High, I knew this is going to be a great three years.
When I’m not in class or studying, I enjoy playing laser tag in the law library, losing my voice at football games, writing scripts for silent film movies, photo bombing random people’s pictures, forgetting my wallet on dates, and laughing at my own jokes. COMO is a fun city with lots of fun places to explore. So come join me and feel free to ask me if you have any questions. And remember, don’t sweat the petty stuff and don’t pet the sweaty stuff.
