Law School: University of Missouri

Austin Fax said his biggest accomplishment in the past year has been to argue before the Missouri Supreme Court.

“Being in front of the Supreme Court is an opportunity that you dream of in law school, and I was extremely fortunate to have that opportunity early in my career,” he said.

Fax says becoming a lawyer was a natural progression from studying journalism as an undergraduate. He became active in politics and his university’s mock trial team, then went on to law school himself.

He advises young lawyers to be open to discomfort. “Don’t be afraid to try things outside of your comfort zone,” he said. “Never back down from a challenge. Ask for help and advice if you need it.”

If you hadn’t become a lawyer, what profession would you have chosen?

I would have loved to call or broadcast baseball games for a living, but likely I would have some job in the field of journalism.

What is your favorite thing to do away from work?

My wife and I love to travel and explore new things and places. I also love to fish, hunt and be outside. And I watch a lot of sports.
