About Jack Gilkey
My name is Jack Gilkey, and I am a 3L here at Mizzou Law! After leaving my hometown of Lamar, Missouri, I went to Mizzou for undergrad and majored in chemical engineering. Unlike many of my classmates who have known they wanted to be lawyers since they were four, I decided very late in the game that I wanted to go to law school. It ended up being the best decision of my life. I plan to be a litigator, specializing in topics intrinsically tied to science.
Every positive aspect of my law school experience is owed to the unique atmosphere of Mizzou Law. Before you start violently rolling your eyes at me, I promise I’m being honest and not acting sleazy. People here want to help you. Law school is a huge challenge, but there has never been a point where I could not turn to those going through the challenges with me for help or some very timely notes when I’m unprepared. I’m confident you would have a similar experience.
I’m available for any questions you may have! The pandemic has made even this introvert grateful for every opportunity to interact with another human. I’d be happy to listen and give advice on how to navigate one of the most important decisions you will make. Look forward to hearing from you!
