About Trent Hamoud
Hello! I’m Trent Hamoud, a second-year student pursuing my J.D. here at Mizzou Law. On behalf of Mizzou Law, I thank you for your interest! I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, and graduated from Washington University in St. Louis in 2017, having double majored in mathematics and finance.
Following graduation, I spent a few years working full-time in Des Moines, Iowa, doing mostly corporate finance work for a large energy company. It wasn’t long after I started working that I saw the advantages a J.D. could bring to my career, and I’m grateful for discussions with students, alumni, and family that put Mizzou Law squarely on my radar.
The sense of welcome, support, and understanding present at Mizzou Law is a clear differentiator from other law schools. Here, you will not only be challenged intellectually to read, write, and think like a lawyer, but more importantly, how to empathize with your peers and your future clients. And it certainly should not be overlooked that Columbia is a great place to live and spend your three years of law school!
