A native of Jefferson County, Andrew Bauman was born and raised in Festus, Missouri, graduating from St. Pius X High School in Crystal City in 2011. Andrew completed his undergraduate studies at Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, graduating in 2015 with a B.A. in History, with minors in Political Science and Historic Preservation. Andrew earned his law degree at Saint Louis University School of Law, graduating in 2018 with a Concentration in Urban Development, Land Use, and Environmental Law. In law school, Andrew gained experience working in the SLU Law Entrepreneurship and Community Development Clinic, providing pro bono legal representation to local individuals, non-profits, small businesses, community groups, and entrepreneurs.
While in law school, Andrew wrote a research paper called “Legally Enabling a Modern-Day Mayberry: A Legal Analysis of Form-Based Zoning Codes.” The paper explored the legal side of “form-based zoning,” a neotraditional approach to developing cities embraced by city planners and architects which focuses on rejuvenating the sense of place within communities. Andrew’s paper took first place at the 2018 Smith-Babcock-Williams Student Writing Competition, a national annual writing competition held by the American Planning Association for law students and graduate city planning students across the country. Andrew’s paper was published in the Spring 2019 issue (Volume 50, Number 1) of The Urban Lawyer, the national law journal on state and local government law, which is published by the American Bar Association's (ABA) Section of State and Local Government Law.
Andrew attends Faith Baptist Church in Festus, where he also serves as a worship drummer. He is an Eagle Scout of the Boy Scouts of America.
