About Cameron Shields

Hello! My name is Cameron Shields and I’m proud to be studying law at Mizzou.  I’m from Abilene, Texas.  I graduated from McMurry University with a major in History and a minor in English in 2014.   Initially, I had planned on going to law school because I wanted to make a difference in the community by providing easy access to the and to courts. Life got in the way.

In 2015, my wife and I had our daughter.  At the time, law school was no longer in the cards.  I worked as a store manager at a “big box” hardware store until 2017.  After which, I became a teacher and taught 8th-grade English in Abilene.  All the while, wishing I had attended law school.

In the fall on 2021, I made the decision to change my life and start a new career.  Mizzou has been instrumental in that success!  The faculty and curriculum are fantastic.  They push each and every one of us to be the best we can.   The student body is massively supportive for both traditional and non-traditional students.

I know that attending law school can be terrifying but I promise that the people at Mizzou will make sure that you succeed!  If you have any questions or concerns about student life or your education, please feel free to contact me.  Good luck on your law school journey and I hope to see you at Mizzou!
