The MU School of Law offers a collegial environment, reinforced by a small student body and a low faculty-student ratio. The intimacy of this setting, coupled with reasonable cost, consistently high bar passage rates, a network of alumni around the globe and access to top scholars in the legal world, make MU Law one of the best values in the nation.
Hello! My name is Garret Morrissey and I am a 2L here at Mizzou Law. I am originally from sunny California but decided to move out to Columbia and graduate from the University of Missouri in 2012 with degrees in History and Political Science. I have lived in Columbia for the past three years and I have to say the town has truly grown on me and is now a home away from home. Not only is the town extremely welcoming but the school and staff here at Mizzou are more than helpful, as well as being very nice! Yet the family environment is truly created by your fellow classmates.
As the oldest of four, the best way to describe the atmosphere here at Mizzou Law is to say that all the students are essentially siblings.The small class sizes lead everyone to know each other, and in turn push and encourage each other through mutual respect and friendly competition that brings out the best in everyone. My first year at Mizzou Law was truly an amazing experience that I will never forget and I look forward to the rest of my time here with much anticipation.
Picking the right law school for you can be a daunting task so please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions about the school, the town, myself, or really anything at all.
