He has also devoted numerous hours to mentoring Illinois students.
After graduating from UIUC in political science, Filler earned two law degrees. He worked for many years in the financial sector before retiring as professor emeritus from the New York Law School in 2020 following 12 years as a faculty member. The Ronald H. Filler Institute for Financial Services Law at NYLS is named in his honor.
