Royce Barondes is a Professor of Law at the University of Missouri, where he primarily teaches Business Organizations, Contracts and Firearms Law.

Following receipt of a J.D. from the University of Virginia, he was an associate for 6-1/2 years at Cravath, Swaine & Moore, in New York City, where his practice emphasized representing investment banks in securities offerings.
