About Me

DSC_2565Welcome to my site and blog!

My name is Madeline McClain. I am a lawyer and a graduate journalism student at the University of Missouri.

Currently, I am learning the ins-and-outs of multimedia journalism including photo, video, audio and how to write.

I am passionate about storytelling and with my unique skill set I have become a go-to source for simplifying legal issues in the news.

Since graduating from MU’s Law School, I’ve worked at the Columbia Missourian, Newsy, Vox and KOMU-TV.

When I’m not in the newsroom or chasing down stories, I enjoy traveling. I studied abroad in Paris, London and Capetown. I’ve also visited Jordan, Israel, Greece, Netherlands, Turkey, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and Egypt. Each place was a learning experience about people, culture, education, and history.

Please have a look around & contact me if you have any questions.
