About Ben Taylor
Hello, my name is Ben Taylor, and I am a current 1L here at Mizzou Law. I grew up in Peoria, Illinois, and attended Saint Louis University where I graduated in 2021 with a degree in Economics.
Growing up, I had the privilege of being able to watch and learn from my dad who was a practicing attorney. He inspired me to want to attend to law school because I was able to see firsthand the positive impact lawyers have on their clients’ lives. Throughout high school and college my desire to want to attend law school grew, and I was blessed to have the opportunity to chase my dream.
I was fortunate enough to be accepted by a few schools, but eventually, I decided on Mizzou. At first, I was nervous and unsure of my decision as I was moving to new place where there was not a single person I knew. However, during orientation and the first week of school I was able to see just how amazing Mizzou Law is. The faculty members are very supportive of their students and want us to succeed not only in our courses but in all aspects of our lives. The students are very friendly, and they have created such an amazing community that I felt right at home here.
I would definitely recommend applying to Mizzou Law, and please feel free to contact with me with any questions. I would be more than willing to help in any way I can.
