About Claire Grissum
Hey there! My name is Claire Grissum, and I am a 1L student at Mizzou Law.
I was born and raised in Boonville, Missouri – a small town less than 30 miles away from Columbia. My family has farmed in mid-MO for generations, and – although I love the thought of manning a tractor or herding cattle as much as the next girl – I am thrilled to be the first in my family to ever attend law school.
I attended the University of Missouri and majored in Political Science with minors in both Criminal & Juvenile Justice and Leadership & Public Service. Once I decided to attend law school, Mizzou Law was a natural choice; because I grew up so close to MIZ, I have been a Tiger since birth!
Regardless of where you are from, however, I know you will feel right at home here at Mizzou Law.
If you have any questions about Mizzou Law, law school in general, or Columbia (especially if you need food recommendations – I know all the best spots), please do not hesitate to reach out!
