Hello! My name is Chris Chandler, and I am a 3L at Mizzou Law. I am from East Saint Louis, Ill. – right outside of St. Louis. Before coming to Mizzou Law, I also attended Mizzou for undergrad and graduated in 2014 with degrees in Political Science and Sociology. The decision to go to Mizzou Law was a pretty easy decision.

I chose Mizzou because of the family atmosphere I experience everyday while on campus. The faculty here at Mizzou Law really brings a sense of home. Everyone is so open and willing to have the simplest conversation about your life story or help you understand a topic you are struggling with in class. Attending Mizzou Law gives you the qualities of a small school academically surrounded by a big school’s atmosphere. The law school is directly across from the Student Center, which is a one-stop shop for everything you may ever need, ranging from food, books, and a law student’s best friend, coffee. With Mizzou being in the SEC, Saturdays are a big deal here with college football and tailgating always keeping our social lives active.

There are so many reasons why I am so happy that I chose to attend Mizzou Law. Unlike other schools, Mizzou Law students really do care to help each other succeed, and professors are always available to help when needed. The law school “dog-eat-dog” mentality is not at Mizzou Law; we really are a family. I could go on for hours about all the perks to attending Mizzou Law, so if you have any questions please feel to contact me.
