The Supreme Court of Missouri recently celebrated the formal investiture of School of Law alumnus Paul C. Wilson, ’92.
Wilson, a Jefferson City native, received an undergraduate degree from Drury College in Springfield, Mo., and his law degree cum laude from the School of Law. He clerked at the Supreme Court of Missouri and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit before becoming an associate at the New York law firm of Sullivan & Cromwell. He returned to Missouri in 1996 to work in the attorney general’s office, culminating there as deputy chief of staff for litigation. He then served as senior counsel for budget and finance and then director of the Transform Missouri Project. In 2010, he served as a circuit judge in Cole County, Mo. He was a member of Van Matre, Harrison, Hollis, Taylor and Bacon PC when Gov. Jeremiah W. “Jay” Nixon, ’81, appointed him to the Supreme Court last December.
