The Richmond Law & Business Forum is excited to spotlight our student board members! This post features Taylor Anne Moffett, a 3L at Richmond Law who is helping to organize a dinner on securities law as well as an event on work-life balance in business law.

Q. Why are you interested in business law? What are your career goals?

A. I have been interested in business since high school when I took economics and competed in FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America). I knew coming into law school that I wanted to explore transactional practice areas within business law. I thoroughly enjoyed my business association, securities regulation, and contract classes. My goal is to become a knowledgeable Structured Finance & Securitization attorney, with additional experience representing clients in Capital Markets.

Q. Have you worked in any positions related to business law?

A. This past summer I rotated through three practice groups at Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP, Capital Markets on their REIT Team, Structured Finance and Securitization, and Healthcare & Life Sciences. All of these practice groups had a business law aspect to them, and in each instance, our clients were businesses.

Q. Why did you join the Richmond Law & Business Forum? What has been your favorite Richmond Law & Business Forum event?

A. I joined because I greatly appreciate all of the events the Richmond Law & Business Forum held last year. They were very insightful, and I wanted to give back to the organization by volunteering my time. I also believed that as the President of Richmond Women's Law, it would be a great opportunity to work together on events to get even more women interested in exploring a career in business law. I thoroughly enjoyed the Spring Social last semester, where we got to speak to alumni in specific fields of interest.

Q. What has been your favorite business law course that you have taken so far?

A. My favorite business law course, and law school class in general, has been Securities Regulation.

Q. What is your favorite thing about Richmond Law?

A. I love the community. The faculty, staff, and students are all truly wonderful and I have found the school to be a very supportive environment.

Q. Any fun or quirky facts about you that you are willing to share?

A. I graduated from UVA when I was 19, I lived on a farm for 12 years, and I was homeschooled for a few years!
