About Brett Newberry

Hi! My name is Brett Newberry, and I’m a 2L at Mizzou Law. I’m from West Plains, Missouri, a small town about three hours south of Columbia. I graduated from Mizzou in the spring of 2022 with a degree in Health Science and a minor in music. 

I began to consider law school my sophomore year of college, and in the spring of that year I had the opportunity to take a tutorial-style property law class from a Mizzou Law professor. I had a great experience in the class, and my interest in the material confirmed my desire to go to law school. When it came time to decide what law school I wanted to go to, I leaned on the experience I had in the tutorial and my love for Columbia/Mizzou to help make my decision. Ultimately, I chose Mizzou Law because of what I knew it offered- a rigorous academic experience in a positive, supportive environment. 

The decision about where to go to law school can be difficult and confusing, so please don’t hesitate to send me an email if you have any questions! I’d love to talk to you about the decision-making process and the things I found most compelling about Mizzou Law.
