When deciding where to go to college or university, Haley Zelenka stayed close to home. She went to college and law school in her home state of Mississippi, where she was born and raised.
Zelenka got a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in English from Mississippi State University. This is an excellent background for her graduate studies in law since people who study law read and write a lot and need to have good writing skills.
After she graduated from Mississippi State University, Zelenka went to the University of Mississippi to study law and get her Juris doctorate (J.D.). Only then did she start working as a lawyer.
