Federal Clerks Chosen
- By Nekita Robinson
Six UF law students have been chosen for
prestigious federal judicial clerkships, where upon
graduation they will work closely with judges in
the federal court system.
According to Assistant Dean for Career
Services Linda Calvert Hanson, many top legal
employers recruit former judicial law clerks after
their terms.
"We are very proud of these six accomplished
students," said Hanson. "The competition for
these highly coveted positions is intense, and their
selection is not only an excellent reflection of the
student's achievements but also on the UF Levin
College of Law's reputation with members of the
judiciary."
The students agreed this is a wonderful
opportunity and will ease the transition into their
careers. They expect to gain a better understand-
ing of how judges come to their decisions, which
will aid them in creating well written, more effec-
tive verbal advocacies. The six are:

1L Summer Activity Survey
Findings Released from NALP
NALP surveyed 3,467 students from 101 law
schools nationwide to learn about first-year sum-
mer experiences. The results indicate:
* 73.8% worked only
* 16.8% worked and attended summer school or
studied abroad
* 7.7% attended summer school or studied abroad
* 1.7% neither worked nor took classes
A look at the types of jobs that were taken
during the summer reveals:
* 60% were paid legal positions
* 14% were volunteer legal positions (no-credit
internships)
* 10% were employed in a nonlegal capacity
* almost 8% worked as research assistants
* 7% were judicial externs
An analysis of types of employers shows:
* Only 35% of employed first-year students were
employed in law firms
* 13% were employed by the federal government
* 12% by the state government


* 10.5% in public interest
* 8% in business
* remainder in other areas
The timing of the 1L summer job offer shows
that almost 80% of the offers were made in the
spring, with approximately 33% made in April,
25% in March, 20% in May and only 16% in
January or February. The most often cited source
of the summer job varied by type of employer,
with the most common in:
* business: have had a prior job (31%), from job
postings (21%), or from a referral (20%)
* public interest: by a job posting (31"..1, self-
initiated 2, '"..,i, or referral (19%)
* government: by job posting 2i"..,), referral
(24%), self-initiated ,22".., or job fair (11%)
* law firms of 101+ attorneys: self-initiated
(31"..1, with referral and spring OCI about 20%
each
* law firms of 26-100 attorneys: spring OCI
121 "..i, referral and self-initiated around 20%
* law firms of 1-25 attorneys: almost 34%
referral, 31% job posting, 18% self-initiated
Armed with this information, fall entering
students can better plan how best to spend their
first summer and how to pursue those options. The

to have a chance to see great lawyers," said
Andrews.
Scott Bauries will serve a year at the U.S. Court
of Appeals 11th Circuit with Judge Emmett
Ripley Cox in Mobile, AL. "This will help me
develop, sharpen and hone my legal talents," he
said. "More students need to know that this is an
option."
Amanda Reid will serve with U.S. District Court
Judge Harvey Schlesinger, Middle District of
Florida, Jacksonville. "I hope to gain a better
understanding of what happens in and out of the
courtroom," she said. "This is an opportunity of a
lifetime and great transition to private practice."
Michael Sayer will work with U.S. District


(Career Services, Continued)
summer goal for all students should be to gain
meaningful experience that permits career explora-
tion while building credentials. Summer options
to consider include: summer abroad (see page 4),
participating in a government program, serving at
a public interest fellowship, volunteering, clerking
for a law firm, doing pro bono, participating in
externship, or being a research assistant. Watch for
upcoming 1L deadlines, some as soon as Dec. 15.

Sponsor CCS Programs
The CCS's fall programming has concluded
as students shift their focus to exam preparation.
The center is assembling an informative series of
programs for spring, so student groups interested
in co-sponsoring a program are urged to contact
Carol Kuczora now at Ktl7.l.7,,I1.il. till C'Jl

Judicial Externships Change
Beginning Spring 2005, CCS will coordinate
the selection process for summer and fall judicial
externships apart from the rest of the externship
program. This process will start in mid-January
with collection of applications from interested stu-
dents and culminate in mid-February with students
being notified of the selections.
This is necessary because CCS routinely hears
from judges that they need more time to review
applicants, interview and select judicial externs;
other Florida law schools handle placements early
in the term and CCS wants to ensure that UF law
students remain competitive; and the lecture series
detailed in the next section is scheduled to begin
later in the spring term to permit spring and sum-
mer judicial externs to attend.


Court Judge Virginia Covington, Middle District
of Florida, in Ft. Meyers. "I knew this was what
I wanted to do, and I pushed up my graduation
to be part of it."
Janelle Weber will serve a year at the U.S. Court
of Appeals 11th Circuit with Judge Edward
Carnes in Montgomery, AL. "I hope to gain lots
of experience and make a nice transition into
private practice," she said.
All six also have agreed to participate as
alumni judicial clerk mentors and assist other UF
law students interested in judicial clerkships.
Learn more about clerkships online at www.
law.ufl.edu/career/pdf/clerkships.pdf, or stop by
the Center for Career Services. O1


Judicial Process Lecture Series
The CCS is launching a Judicial Process
Lecture Series on a pilot basis this spring designed
to encourage students to consider a judicial clerk-
ship post-graduation and provide a well rounded
experience for students who choose to participate
in judicial externships. The presentations are
expected to better prepare students for the judicial
experience by providing exposure to all levels of
the federal and state courts and information that
will help them succeed in their judicial externship
role.
The not for-credit series is scheduled for five
consecutive Wednesdays, March 9-April 6, at
6 p.m. Guest lecturers will include judges from
federal and state courts, law clerks and judicial
assistants.

Graduating Next Month?
December 2004 graduates who have yet to
accept a job offer or have questions about employ-
ment options should schedule an appointment with
a CCS attorney counselor as soon as possible.

Network at Alumni Receptions
Alumni receptions are an excellent opportuni-
ty to hone networking skills, meet members of the
legal community and make valuable professional
contacts. Space for students is limited, so to attend
send your name, class year and the reception loca-
tion to careers@law.ufl.edu as soon as possible.

The college sponsors a Joint Environmental
Law Program with the Universidad de Costa Rica,
where Latin American attorneys and law and grad-
uate students sit side by side with their American
counterparts, enriching the learning experience of
all involved.
"The Summer 2005 program will offer even
more than before," said Program Director Tom
Ankersen. "In addition to our core curriculum, the
conservation clinic and issue-based field trips, we
plan to offer an additional skills course in environ-
mental dispute resolution."
Limited to 20 participants, the Costa Rica
program offers students the opportunity to study
environmental law in both English and Spanish.
In addition to classes focusing on legal issues,
students can take specialized Spanish courses and
participate in a home stay language immersion
program. (Learn more about the program online at
http://conservation.law.ufl.edu/summercostarica.)
"The summer abroad program in Costa Rica
was an amazing experience, since it allowed me to
apply what I had learned in various environmental
law courses I took
at UF in a hands-on
setting, immerse
myself in a wel-
coming culture, and
meet great friends
in the process,"
said Katrina
Thomas (3L).
Participants in all three programs pay a flat
course fee that covers all academic and adminis-
trative costs; however, students are responsible for
their own housing, meals, travel, and insurance
costs. For more information about study abroad
opportunities, visit the Student Affairs website,

Career Paths: Florida Supreme Court

Justice Charles Wells ByDeborahCupples(3L)


He's a very busy man, and always has been.
On a typical day, Florida Supreme Court Justice
Charley Wells (right) arrives at the court at 6:30
a.m. to read his newspapers the Wall Street
Journal, St. Petersburg Times and Orlando
Sentinel before the rush begins. Because once
the court building comes alive, it's non-stop until
the day ends.
"If there are no oral arguments on a given day,
I'll probably have 15 jurisdictional decisions to
consider," Wells said. "After jurisdictional ques-
tions are decided, I work through cases trying to
develop opinions."
Then there's preparation for the Wednesday
conferences, where the justices come together to
discuss circulated opinions. Cases are assigned
randomly, and oral arguments are heard in about
half of them.
"I have three law clerks," Wells said. "But I
like to do a lot of my own research."
A proud "Double-Gator" who has been
recognized as a Distinguished Alumnus of the
University of Florida, Wells earned his bachelor's
in 1961 and law degree in 1964. As an under-
graduate, he participated in UF's homecoming and
Florida Blue Key, and was elected to the UF Hall
of Fame in 1961.
After graduation, Wells received one of the
three highest bar exam scores in the state in 1965,
and spoke at the induction ceremony at the Second
