Based out of Layton and Southard’s Perryville Office, Andrew J. Bauman joined the firm in 2021 after practicing law in Jefferson County, Missouri for three years. Born and raised in Festus, Missouri, Bauman completed his undergraduate studies at Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau, graduating summa cum laude in 2015 with a B.A. in History and minors in Political Science and Historic Preservation. Bauman earned his law degree at the Saint Louis University School of Law, graduating in 2018 with a Concentration in Urban Development, Land Use, and Environmental Law.
Bauman’s legal research paper entitled “Legally Enabling a Modern-Day Mayberry: A Legal Analysis of Form-Based Zoning Codes” (50 URB. LAW. 41 (2019)) was published in the Spring 2019 issue (Volume 50, Number 1) of The Urban Lawyer, the national law journal of the American Bar Association's Section of State and Local Government Law. Bauman’s paper analyzed the legal issues associated with “form-based zoning,” a neotraditional approach to comprehensive land use regulation which is rejuvenating the sense of place and functionality within communities by shifting the focus of zoning to design and form rather than separation of land uses.
Notable Legal Experience
Notable cases on which Bauman has served as counsel or co-counsel include the Missouri Supreme Court constitutional law case City of De Soto, et al. v. Michael L. Parson, et al., No. SC 98891, 2021 WL 3117987 (Mo. July 22, 2021).
