William Woods University
Political & Legal Studies
Hi everyone! My name is Morgan Westhues and I am currently a 2L at Mizzou Law. I grew up in the small town of Fayette, Missouri and I have always been a Tigers fan! I received my Bachelor of Arts in Political/Legal Studies with a minor in English from William Woods University in 2015.
I always knew I wanted to be an attorney, and having grown up only 30 minutes away from Columbia, Mizzou has always had a special place in my heart. The summer before my senior year of undergrad I interned at a firm in Jefferson City, Missouri. While working there I grew to greatly respect and admire the attorneys in that office, most of which went to Mizzou Law. Seeing the pride that these alumni had coming from Mizzou further strengthened my decision to attend their alma mater. Mizzou has a very strong alumni network, and I am grateful to now share that same Mizzou Law pride.
Now that I have finished my 1L year I have seen firsthand the support that this school has to offer from both faculty and fellow students. Our faculty genuinely cares about their students and although law school can be tough, you will always find a shoulder to lean on at Mizzou. I hope you enjoy your visit to Mizzou Law and feel free to contact me with any questions!
