Displaced Students Find Home at UF


Aaron Hutchinson, a 2L
student at Tulane University, has
no idea whether the 19th century
house he rents is underwater. He
doesn't know if his car, which is
parked on the top floor of a park-
ing garage, has been looted. He
doesn't know what happened to
any of his possessions, save two
suits of clothes and his laptop
computer.
But he does know he is lucky
to get out ahead of Hurricane
Katrina, the storm that devastat-
ed New Orleans. Like more than
two dozen other students from
Tulane and Loyola University-
New Orleans, he's hoping to keep
his career on track for graduation
by temporarily enrolling here at
UE
"Everyone here has been really
great," Hutchinson said. "They
have offered me places to stay
and clothes to wear. The admin-
istration has been really helpful
and professors have offered to
help me after hours so I can catch
up.
In the wake of Hurricane
Katrina, law schools around the
country have opened their doors
to the roughly 2,000 students
displaced by the storm. With 29

Hurricane Katrina shut down higher education and everything else in the Big Easy.


New Orleans students enrolled

Levin College of Law is doing
its part to help Louisiana law
students get back to normal.
"It's something we can do,"
said Associate Dean for Aca-
demic Affairs George Dawson.
"If you've watched television
lately, you know there are people
in New Orleans with far larger
problems than an interrupted

Dawson said Louisiana
students aren't likely to compete
with regular UF students for
space in coveted classes. He said
the law school is accepting only
2Ls and 3Ls, and admitting them
to classes only on a space-avail-
able basis.

CAREERSERVICES
Hints to help you in the legal profession


Don't Call Them:
They'll Call you
Your level of professional-
ism in your dealings with legal
employers can set the tone for
your career, as reputations are
cultivated early. Employers visit-
ing our campus specifically ask
that students not contact them
directly. It is critical to adhere
to this request because this time
of year is crushingly busy for
the employers as they collect
information about interested
students from numerous law
schools and schedule their
visits. To honor the employers'
requests, the law school's policy
is that students cannot directly
contact the interviewing firms
prior to their on-campus visit.
Your adherence to this policy is
important for all.

Disability Mentoring Day
Florida Disability Mentor-
ing Day, to be held Oct. 19, is
designed to promote career de-
velopment for students and job-
seekers with disabilities through
hands-on career exploration, job
shadowing, internships and em-
ployment opportunities. Funded
by a grant from The Florida Bar
Foundation, the event is being
coordinated by the Disability
Independence Group (DIG),
which currently is working with
lawyers who have disabilities.
For additional information,
visit the Disability Mentoring
website at www.floridamd.org,
contact Danielle Strickman at
DIG at (305) 267-3488, or
e-mail dstrickm@earthlink.net.


Florida Supreme Court Clerkship Openings
Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice Barbara Pariente, Justice
R. Fred Lewis, Justice Raoul Cantero, III, and Justice Kenneth
Bell all are accepting applications for post graduate judicial clerk-
ships for two-year terms beginning in August 2006. Justice Peggy
Quince is accepting applications for a vacancy in January 2006.
For full details, consult the law school's job bank in Symplicity.

ment in a workshop to be held

After the Interview
So you've found your dream job and met with the people who could hire you. What next? Career Services offers
some tips on how to gain an edge after the interview is over.


Follow-Up
* Be sure to send thank-you
letters. In deciding whether
to hand-write or type the
note, consider the employer.
If the interviewers are from a
conservative, traditional firm,
then type the letter. If the firm
is a more modern, contempo-
rary firm, hand-write the note.
Additional suggestions about
thank-you letters can be found
on the Career Services website
under career resources, letters
www.law.ufl.edu/career/pdf/
letters.pdf.
* If several weeks go by and you
hear nothing from the firm or the
interviewers, give them a call.
* Be polite, yet show enthusiasm
and interest in the position.
* If you have to leave a message,
do so, but try calling back. Do
not be a pest.
* Know what information you
are seeking. Where are they
in their hiring process? When
do they anticipate making a
decision? Do they require any
additional documents or infor-
mation from you?

Traveling
* Learn the firm's travel reim-
bursement policies before you
confirm your travel. Know
what expenses are considered
reasonable and reimbursable.
Do not submit charges for
expensive dinners or entertain-
ing friends.
* Keep receipts and submit
requests for reimbursement
promptly. If interviewing with
more than one organization


on a single trip, establish who
is reimbursing what portion
before traveling.
* The Student Travel Reimburse-
ment Form is available on the
web at www.nalp.org/content/
index.php?pid=68.

The Call-Back
* When setting your call-back
date, request a copy of your
interview schedule, including
interviewers' names, to better
prepare yourself for any events
included such as a reception,
dinner, or breakfast. Check to
see whether you will have a
series of individual interviews
throughout the day or a panel
of interviewers.
* At the end of the session, ask
when you should expect to
hear about a decision.

The Offer
* Salary offers for summer
employment typically are non-
negotiable. Beginning and end
dates may be negotiable.
* A permanent offer of employ-
ment requires you to make a
very important decision. If
there are particular issues that
are important to you, ask about
them before you accept or de-
dine an offer. Employers expect
you to honor your commit-
ment, so if you have doubts or
concerns, please contact Career
Services for guidance before
accepting an offer. To accept
an offer and then back down is
considered unprofessional.
Before you accept, ask the
employer to flesh out their
position on signing bonuses,


financial assistance for bar
preparation, relocation expense
reimbursement, bar dues and
CLE cost reimbursement, paid
parking and other benefits.
* Be familiar with the National
Association for Law Placement's
Principles and Standards for
Law Placement and Recruit-
ment Activities, which include
"General Standards for the
Timing of Offers and Deci-
sions." Visit NALP's website at
www.nalp.org/content/index.
php?pid=28.
* If you are not prepared to
accept the offer immediately,
keep in touch with the recruit-
ing coordinator or an attorney
at the organization, typically
at one month after the offer.
Let them know what you are
doing, even if you are inter-
viewing with other employers.
Be honest.
* The employer's letter confirm-
ing your offer should indicate
a deadline for your response. If
you are not ready to accept by
your offer deadline, it is critical
to call the employer to reaffirm
your interest and request an
extension. Be aware that if you
do nothing, you could lose the
offer. Do not wait until the day
before or the day of the dead-
line to ask for an extension.
* If you decide to decline the
offer, do so graciously, being
mindful that the legal com-
munity is small and you do
not want to burn your bridges.
For helpful suggestions, con-
sult the Career Services website
at www.law.ufl.edu/career/pdf/
letters.pdf.

Displaced from Page 1
arriving students, said Director
of Admissions Lewis Hutchison.
So far, however, there has been
no shortage of people willing to
take law students in.
"The students and faculty
have been eager to open their
homes to these students," he
said. "So far, we have more
housing than we have students
in need of it."


Paddling the Prairie
Students and faculty in the Environmental and Land Use
Law Program used the long Labor Day weekend to launch
their activities for the fall semester. On Friday. Sept. 2, Profes-
sor Mark Fenster hosted a "kick off the semester" reception at
his historic Duck Pond neighborhood home.
The following morning, five faculty members and 16 stu-
dents paddled out onto Payne's Prairie, which has once again
become a lake in the wake of last year's hurricanes and a wet
2005. Students and faculty were treated to the spectacular yel-
low blooms of the American lotus, which covers large portions
of the Prairie.
For more information on the Environmental and Land Use
Law program, go to www.law.ufl.edu/elulp.


Hutchison said the registra-
tion of Tulane and Loyola
students has run smoothly, in
part because the law school's
leaders reacted quickly to news
of the storm.
"You can tell everyone had
this on their minds even before
the storm hit," Hutchison said.
"For instance, when we asked
Dean (Patrick) Shannon how


many students we could take,
he was able to give us a number
instantly."
Of course, UF administrators
have good reason to devote their
attention to hurricane planning.
"This is Florida, after all," said
Dawson. "We're always aware
that in a week or a month, we
could be in a similar situation."


Environmental
Moot Court
Tryouts
Interested in environmental
law? Want to hone your
brief-writing and appellate
advocacy skills? Third-semes-
ter students have a chance to
try out for the team that will
represent UF at the National
Environmental Moot Court
Competition in February 2007
in White Plains, New York. Be-
cause of the need for continu-
ity, the team is now beginning
the process of training a new
member to participate in next
year's competition. Apply by
Sept. 23. For more informa-
tion, contact Maria Wolfe at
273-0777 or e-mail elulp@
law.ufl.edu.



Mandatory LEXIS

LEXIS will offer its mandatory
classes for second-semester
appellate advocacy students
this week. The class schedule
is as follows:
Sept. 13
Tomlinson, 11 a.m., room
355B
Adkins, 2 p.m., room 355B

Sept. 14

vided, and everyone is invited
to attend.
