Leading the Leaders:

UF Law Students Head Florida Blue Key
The University of Florida College of Law often cites its strong
alumni network and connections to political leaders, and its professors
refer to the power UF law graduates can wield and the faculty's respon-
sibility to teach students to use it for the greater good.
These are more than just words. Particularly within the state of
Florida, many of those responsible for shaping the world we live in
learned the law in these halls. And the first place to look for tomor-
row's leaders is the prestigious leadership organization Florida Blue
Key, where law students have been represented in disproportionate
numbers since its formation in 1923. Of its nearly 150 presidents,
fewer than 25 lack a UF law degree. Its top two positions are now held
by UF law students Karen Persis (3L) and Alexis Lambert (2L).
To list just a few, FBK/College of Law alumni have served as
Florida govemors (Lawton Chiles and Ruben Askew), justices on the
Florida Supreme Court (former Chief Justices Alto Adams, Stephen H.
Grimes and Charles T. Wells), and leaders and organizers in their com-
munities throughout the state (Dr. Stephen C. O'Connell; Buddy Dyer,
Mayor of Orlando; Bill McBride and former UF President Marshall
"We are a leadership organization," said Persis. "Service and com-
mitment to the University of Florida is our priority, and that is what we
focus on."
FBK members are "tapped" based on demonstrated service and
commitment to the university. Most are chosen as undergraduates,
though some like recent initiate Ben Diamond (Florida Law
Review's Fall 2003 editor) are picked
after entering graduate/professional school.
Future members often begin organiz-
ing events and mobilizing classmates to
accomplish goals as soon as they hit cam-
pus, a pattern of productivity and achieve-
ment repeated lifelong for many.
"It's so interesting to see pattems
between the organizations students are
involved in and the paths their careers
take," said UF law Historian Betty Taylor.
"Florida Blue Key members often go into
politics or leadership positions, while many
Law Review members are now professors."
Among FBK's projects is Gator
Growl, the world's largest student-run
pep-rally, which gives FBK members the
chance to work with a variety of comedi-
ans, bands and performers, many on the
cusp of stardom. (for details, visit
www.gatorgrowl. org).

alumni who enjoyed successful political careers.
