Mizzou Law Hires Anthony Meyer, ’18, as New Visiting Associate Professor

Leaders at the University of Missouri School of Law are excited to announce that Anthony Meyer will be joining the Mizzou Law faculty this summer as a visiting associate professor. Before teaching at Mizzou, Professor Meyer started his own law practice in Columbia. Prior to founding his own firm, he worked at Lear Werts LLP a plaintiff-centered litigation firm where he represented clients in employment, consumer protection, wage and hour, and class action cases and worked in multidistrict litigation and mass torts practice.

Professor Meyer is a writer and teacher by training, using his skills to advocate for his clients in litigation and negotiations. He will teach legal research and writing at Mizzou Law during the 2023-24 academic year. Professor Meyer graduated magna cum laude from Mizzou Law in 2018, where he was managing editor of the Missouri Law Review, member of the Veterans Law Clinic and was elected by the faculty into the Order of the Coif. He then served as a law clerk to the Honorable Paul C. Wilson of the Supreme Court of Missouri.

“I am very excited that Tony will be joining us,” said Paul Litton, dean of Mizzou Law. “I have known him since his time studying here. He is an outstanding writer, has a sharp mind, and is overall a great person.”

Professor Meyer has published a variety of legal scholarship, including the article “Standing in Missouri’s Federal and State Courts,” which received the W. Oliver Rasch Award for outstanding substantive article in the Journal of the Missouri Bar and was cited approvingly by the Supreme Court of Missouri. In 2021, he also published a chapter in Labor Law Landscape in conjunction with Mizzou Law professor Rafael Gely, “Labor Law in the Public Sector.”

He served as a member of the Missouri Bar’s Leadership Academy for newly admitted attorneys who are leaders in their communities, is a member of the Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys and was appointed to the organization’s Amicus Committee.
