Hi! My name is Justin Dwyer and I’m a 3L here at Mizzou! I’m from Ballwin, Missouri but I spent my undergraduate time in Des Moines, Iowa at Drake University where I double majored in Law, Politics, & Society and Politics. During my 4 years at Drake I was heavily involved in my social fraternity, worked at a law firm in downtown Des Moines, and played as many intramurals as I could!

I’ve known for a long time that law is one of my passions, and exploring options for law school really opened my eyes to how many types of law are out there. I looked at schools across the country, but Mizzou never left the top of my list. For me, the JD/MBA program Mizzou offers is an incredible opportunity for me to explore where law and business come together. When I visited campus, the small school feel on a large campus, outstanding faculty, and extremely talented students showed me that Columbia was where I wanted to be. My admissions experience really made me feel like I was already a part of the Tiger family, and so here I am!

When I’m not hitting the books, you can find me enjoying all of the beautiful golf courses in Columbia (it still blows my mind that there is a campus golf course). I’m usually pretty good about checking my email on the course, so if you have any questions about Mizzou please don’t hesitate to ask!
