The Summer 2012 Commencement ceremony featured an address from Gabriel Gore, Missouri State University alumni and partner at the St. Louis law firm of Dowd Bennett LLP.
Gore graduated from Missouri State University with a Bachelor of Arts in political science in 1991 before going on to law school at The University of Chicago Law School. From 1995-99, Gore served as an assistant United States attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri, during which time he was responsible for enforcing the criminal laws of the United States.
After retiring from government service, Gore went in to private practice, representing Fortune 500 companies, business executives and high-ranking members of both the executive and legislative branches of government in a wide range of high-profile commercial litigation and government investigation matters.
In addition, he served as president of the St. Louis Public Library Board of Directors and founding chairman of the KIPP St. Louis Charter School and remains active on both boards. He also served as a mentor and tutor to at-risk, inner-city children.
