George Gordon's School of Law

This is the only authorized site for George Gordon's original school still at the farm in Isabella, Missouri since 1984, and still at the original phone number.

What is George Gordon's School of Law?

George Gordons School of Law is a private, pre-arranged school located in the heart of the Missouri Ozarks. This school has a number of classes that are aimed at one or both of the two goals of the school: enabling someone to competently represent him/herself in the civil court system, and teaching individuals the theory and practice of the Mosaic Law found in the Scriptures. George had not sought, nor would he have accepted, government accreditation or funding for this school; in fact, he turned down offers of accreditation and a law degree so that he could  continue to teach things in his own fashion without government interference, as an individual.

George, oftimes called the Godfather of the Common Law by the media, taught people for over thirty-three years, thirty of them in Isabella, Missouri. He had literally thousands of people come to a town so small that it doesn't show up on many maps. And you ask, "Why?" The reason is that his students succeed. Of those who have gone through his classes, for example, only a few (less than twenty that we know of) have lost tax cases that they've been involved in, and those few either came to class after a grand jury had handed down an indictment and/or ignored what George taught them and hired a lawyer instead. This is an unprecedented record, especially when one considers that law is essentially a zero-sum game where you have to have a loser for every winner. And remember, prosecutors usually don't file charges until they're pretty sure they can win, so the percentage of cases, especially tax cases, won by the government is extremely high, over 90% in many courts. We admit that in most of these cases you can't find them by name or case number because we consider a win in tax court (for example) to consist of meeting 3 goals: (1) avoiding jail; (2) retaining use of your assets; and (3) solving the problem of harassment from then on through a change in status, not rebellion. Georges students are over 90% successful in attaining those three goals in tax cases. Not too bad when you consider that lawyers, either criminal or civil, lose about 94% of their cases. Even pro se litigants, on the average, don't do too much better, losing about 84% of their cases. But, a national legal publication noted that trained pro se litigants average a 90% win rate.

We keep class sizes low (about 6 students) to allow each student time for individual attention. We believe in quality, not quantity. Also, since no two people come from the same background, have the same problems, or wish to obtain the same goals, we've found that individual attention is not merely good, it's essential for success. We also offer help by telephone.

There are George Gordon wanna-bes out there, duplicating Georges material, but the classroom portion, i.e. the attention paid to each and every student, is missing from their attempts to copy George; often we find the entire point of doing something is missing, with people being told "Just do it, because that's what you have to do. You don't have to understand why." We've found that if you want to be successful, you do what successful people do and understand why they do it. If you want to be a winner like George, you have to do what he does, not just a little here and a little there. It may be hard, but it works. The wanna-be's tend to leave out both the explanations and the hard parts, either because they don't understand it or they've decided that it's more marketable if it's easier.
