Panel: History Wronged Bryan


VOL. 9, NO. 18 JANUARY 23, 2006


More than 80 years after
biology teacher John Scopes was
tried for violating a Tennessee
law banning the teaching of
Darwin's theory, the evolu-
tion/creation debate still divides
Americans.
But the cast members of "The
Great Tennessee Monkey Trial"
- a play based on transcripts of
the Scopes trial seem to be
in agreement about one thing.
History, they say, has handed a
raw deal to the populist orator
William Jennings Bryan, who
took the creationist side in the
trial.
"Although he wasn't right on
this issue (evolution), he was
right on many of the issues that
were crucial in his time," said
actor James Gleason. "He got
confused on the stand, trying to



Actors from the play enjoy a

Conference Looks at
'Politics of Inequality'
A unique intercontinental conference
March 5-7 will focus on the "Politics
of Inequality" and honor the 100th
birthday of the late Gwendolen Carter,
a former UF professor and Oxford-edu-
cated anthropologist who wrote the
1958 book, The Politics of Inequality:
South Africa Since 1948. Carter
overcame the many obstacles facing
a handicapped woman of that time to
become an acknowledged intellectual
leader and to profoundly influence
politics related to social democratic
values and the Rule of Law.
"Gwendolen was very well known in
Africa, where her social circle ranged
from Nelson Mandela to Julius Nyerere,
and was one of the few Americans of
her generation who had access to the
most progressive aspects of African
politics and legal development," said
Samuel T. Dell Research Scholar
Winston Nagan, a co-organizer of the
conference and personal friend of
Carter.
The interdisciplinary conference will
be hosted by the University of Florida
and University of Cape Town, South
S Africa, with events held on both
campuses, many of which will be linked
though teleconferencing technology.
The Gainesville conference will be
sponsored by the law school, the Col-
lege of Liberal Arts and Sciences and
the Center for International Studies.
Speakers will include distinguished
political scientists, lawyers, inter-
national studies experts, diplomats,
novelists and poets.
S Faculty and students are invited to
participate and attend the conference.
Contact Professor Nagan at nagan@
law.ufl.edu for more information.

Hints to help you in the legal profession



Gain Experience, Contacts & More Through Externships


Wondering how to develop a
better grasp of a particular field,
or how to work more closely with
a faculty member while gaining
experience? Applying for an ex-
ternship will help you accomplish
all this and more. The hands-on
learning experiences available
to student externs are often not
available in the traditional class-
room setting, and can enhance
the substantive
law curriculum.
Students often
ask whether
an externship
experience will
complement
their resumes or
help them get
positions after
law school.
"Absolutely,"
says Assistant
Dean Linda
Calvert Han-
son. "Students

Information about extern-
ship offerings and application
procedures can be obtained by at-
tending one of the two externship
informational meetings to be held
Tuesday, Jan. 24, at noon and
repeated at 5 p.m. Wednesday,
Jan. 25, in room 285B.
The law school offers many
faculty-created externships, and


under certain limited circum-
stances, may permit students to
create an externship. However,
the administration is currently re-
evaluating the externship program
to fully integrate new ABA rules.
Few student-created externships,
if any, are expected to be ap-
proved for summer or fall 2006.
It is likely that no out-of-state or
out-of-country student-created

externships will be approved for
summer or fall.
If you do wish to try for a
student-created externship, it
is imperative that you strictly
adhere to all published deadlines.
The deadline for submitting
applications for faculty-created
externships is noon, Feb. 10.
The deadline for student-created
externships is noon March 20.
The mandatory orientation for
summer 2006 externships will be
held in April.


You will be amazed at the
diverse offerings. For example:
Judicial externships include
positions with federal district
judges, bankruptcy judges, the
Florida Supreme Court, and
state family, criminal or probate
law judges.

Bryan from Page 1
Public perception of the Scopes
trial has been shaped by "Inherit
the Wind," the popular play and
film that treated the 1925 trial
in fictionalized form. "The Great
Tennessee Monkey Trial" hews
closer to the facts, with dialogue
drawn from court records.
The chief difference between
the two plays, panelists said,
was their depiction of Bryan. A
supporter of progressive causes
such as women's suffrage, Bryan
was considered one of the greatest
orators of his age. Panelists said
the real Bryan was far from the
pompous pontificator of "Inherit
the Wind" though they agreed
that Bryan blundered in allowing
himself to be cross-examined by
Clarence Darrow.
"Bryan's problem is that he
allowed himself to be pushed into
a corner about fundamentalist
interpretation of the Bible," said
Hardin, who portrays the judge
in the play.
Hardin noted that, with the
evolution issue once again before
the courts and local school sys-
tems, the play is as timely today
as the trial itself was in 1925.


of Transportation, Florida Fish
& Wildlife, and the Ocean

in Atlanta, Washington, D.C.,
Eugene, Oregon, and Costa
Rica.
* A trade law opportunity is
available in Costa Rica.
* An international intellectual
property opportunity is avail-
able in New York City.


"When you hear the ques-
tion-and-answer process between
Darrow and Bryan, it sounds
exactly like the arguments you
hear today," Hardin said.
Cast members said "The Great
Tennessee Monkey Trial" has
sparked a wide range of reac-
tions as it toured the country


* Municipal law openings are
available in Gainesville, Jack-
sonville, Broward County and
Miami, and U.S. Attorneys'
Offices in Florida.
* There are also offerings in pris-
oners' rights and with Student
Legal Services.

externship information meetings
this week.


- though the actors say they have
been pleasantly surprised with
the thoughtful tone of the debate
generated by the play.
"I think the whole reason to
do the play is to say, 'here are the
transcripts, you make your own
judgment,'" Pescovitz said.


Robert Pescovitz, who plays several roles in "The Great Tennessee
Monkey Trial," talks with 2L Ben Stetler after a panel discussion in
the Chesterfield Smith Ceremonial Classroom.
