All but two of the law clerks I have hired since I have been an appellate judge have been Mizzou grads. As a proud alum myself, I know the applicants from Mizzou will always have received an excellent education that well prepares them for the duties and challenges of clerking. I have never been disappointed. Each Mizzou grad has proven to be a fabulous law clerk and an outstanding attorney. I am proud of them and enjoy their lifelong friendships.
