Hello, my name is Katherine Sheffield, and I am a 3L. I am originally from Rolla, Missouri. I graduated with a major in Political Science and a minor in Spanish from the University of Missouri-Columbia in May 2011. During my undergraduate career, I participated in collegiate and club sports, was an active member of Kappa Alpha Theta, studied abroad in Spain, and volunteered locally with children and recent immigrants in the Columbia community. I am most interested in Criminal, Family, and International Law.

While the financial incentives of attending an in-state school were a great incentive, my choice to attend Mizzou Law was solidified by the community-oriented atmosphere that the students and faculty exhibit. While competition is a given, the friendly, helpful, and educational environment that exists here at Mizzou Law is a strong indicator of not only a successful law school,  but a school that will adequately prepare students to become successful lawyers, litigators, and leaders. I have enjoyed all of my experiences here and I know I made the right choice in choosing Mizzou Law. I would love to help you in your search to choose the right law school for you. Good luck and I look forward to hearing from you!
