Deadlines for Job Fairs
Job fairs are events sponsored by groups of
law schools, where employers are invited to
one location to interview only students from
the sponsoring law schools. Students are
responsible for their own travel and lodging
expenses associated with attending all job
fairs. Note: Some job fairs have registration
costs to be paid by the student, in addition
to the fees paid by the law school.
Job fairs are a great way to gain exposure
to out-of-state employers, or employers who
may not interview on-campus, and to talk to
a large number of employers in a short period
of time. You must read your registration
material for each job fair very carefully, as
each has different deadlines and very spe-
cific formats for turning in materials. If your
materials are incorrectly submitted to Career
Services, you will be ineligible to participate
in the job fair. Students are prohibited
from contacting any of the participating
employers or sponsoring law schools prior
to the job fair or the entire law school will
be expelled from the job fair. All students are
eligible to participate in all job fairs, regard-
less of stated preferences.
* Southeastern Minority Job Fair
(SEMJF) in Atlanta: Interviews Aug. 3-4.
Registration Deadline: June 28.
* Mid-Atlantic Legal Recruiting
Conference (MALRC) in Washington,
DC: Interviews Aug. 24. Registration
Deadline: July 6.
* Southeastern Law Placement
Consortium (SELPC) in Atlanta, GA:
Interviews Aug. 17. Registration
Deadline: July 10.
To be eligible to participate in job fairs
sponsored by UF, you must have a signed
Job Fair No Show Policy form on file with
Career Services.

fairs, visit the Career Services website at

Federal Judicial Clerkships
2007 Federal Judicial Clerkship Ap-
plication Procedures were announced in
the CCS Judicial Clerkship program last
Wednesday. For anyone who missed the
program, the full handouts are available
from CCS. The time frame for starting the
process towards obtaining a clerkship is
The Federal Judicial Clerkship Hiring
Plan provides that:
Only 3Ls and alumni are eligible to ap-
ply for post-graduate federal clerkships.
3Ls only (not alumni) should mail
their clerkship applications so that they
arrive no earlier than the Tuesday fol-
lowing Labor Day (Sept. 4).
Mid-term vacancies must be filled
promptly and may be on a different
time schedule.
Full details of the hiring plan along
with the timing guidelines are available
at http://www.cadc.uscourts.gov/inter-
There are two ways to apply for a judicial
clerkship. It is essential that you know
which judges subscribe to which applica-
tion method.
1) The first application method has the
Federal courts using an Online System
for Clerkship Application and Review
(OSCAR). This is an internet based ap-
plication that permits a federal judge to
opt into the system to receive clerkship
applications electronically. Applicants
apply to "OSCAR" judges by uploading
application materials directly on-line to
the designated judge and the recommender
also uploads letters of recommendation in
the same manner. Then once the electronic
review system opens the day after Labor
Day, it permits the judges and chambers
staff to sort, screen, and review applications
online. Go to http://www.dcd.uscourts.
(2) The second method does not use the
OSCAR system. Some judges, including
some in the 11th Circuit publish applica-
tion deadlines as early as May 1 and make
their hiring decisions over the summer.

Other judges who accept early applica-
tions may communicate this information
more informally. Additionally, many of the
Florida Middle and Southern district court
judges do not follow the guidelines and
accept early applications as well.
Because OSCAR is a new system, be
aware that we have had judges who some-
times request early applications and who
also list themselves as OSCAR judges, not
realizing that they would be unable to view
the applications until the day after Labor
Day. The only way to meet an early dead-
line is to submit a paper application.
How can Career Services Assist You
With Clerkship Applications?
CCS contacts most chambers of the
courts sited in Florida to determine va-
cancies, preferred application method
and anticipated deadlines. This
information is then communicated to
interested students and alums via the
judicial list serve.
To subscribe to the judicial list serve,
interested students can go to the list
serve home page at https://lists.law.ufl.
edu/mailman/listinfo/judicial clerkship
hotline or send a blank email with a
UF email address to judicial-clerkship-
You will receive a confirmation email
within 24 hours.
CCS acts as both the law school
administrator for OSCAR application
judges and as the central repository for
student letters of recommendations
for the second type of application, the
non-OSCAR, "paper" judges.
Non-OSCAR (paper judges) judges have
expressed a strong preference for receiv-
ing only completed applications together
with all letters of recommendation for each
applicant. Therefore, for students apply-
ing to "paper" judges, once the student's
"paper" letters of recommendation are
finalized, they will be delivered to CCS in
a sealed envelope. In accordance with the
Hiring Guidelines, UF Law will not mail
any letters of recommendation before Sept.
4. Students can make arrangements with

2 FlaLaw

the CCS to obtain their sealed recommen-
dations for inclusion in any application
packets that they mail.
Obtaining Letters of Recommendation
from UF Law Faculty
Students who will be 3Ls in the fall
need to meet with the faculty mem-
ber, clinic or legal skills instructor,
from whom they are seeking letters of
support now. The student will provide
the faculty member with valid contact
information for the summer along
with a copy of their resume and other
materials that would be helpful to the
professor in distinguishing the student
and speaking to his/her strengths. In
addition, students will need to provide
an Excel spreadsheet containing the list
of judges with titles and addresses (one
per line).
The faculty and their support staff have
asked that we impose a deadline of
Friday, April 20, to request letters of
recommendation for federal clerkships.
This deadline will enable the faculty
members to draft the letters before they
begin grading final exams and before
they leave for the summer. Adjust-
ments can be made to the list of judges
at a later time; however, the primary
goal is to get the letter drafted early in
the process.
Full application instructions are avail-
able in CCS.
State Court Clerkships
A wide range of state and local judicial
clerkships also provide highly rewarding op-
portunities and may be less competitive.
For example, applications are being
accepted for two-year staff attorney
positions with Florida Supreme Court
Chief Justice R. Fred Lewis (to begin
August 2008).
Trial court staff attorney positions and
clerkships with Florida's district courts
of appeal are regularly posted under
"employment" on the Florida Courts
site at www.flcourts.org/.

ships in other states will want to consult

Though she arrived at law school with a finance
degree from UF, Mary Beth Savary Taylor's pas-
sions were always in politics and public policy.
Prior to her arrival at UF Law, the Sarasota native
had just completed a Lyndon Baines Johnson
internship with then-U.S. Congressman Connie
Mack. Still, as she worked her way through law
school, Savary Taylor's interests were pulled in
both directions as she took business-oriented
classes while maintaining an eye for politics.
After clerkships for a judge in the Second District
Court of Appeals and with the PGA Tour, she
worked as deputy finance director raising funds
for Mack's successful U.S. Senate campaign, an
experience that eventually led her to her first job
in Washington, D.C.
"I feel like I've been blessed being in the right
place at the right time," said Savary Taylor,
whose father, Johnson S. (Buddy) Savary (JD 56)
is a member of the UF Law Board of Trustees. "I
was given the opportunity to come to Washing-
ton, D.C. to work on Senator Connie Mack's
legislative team and was handed the portfolio of
health care, an area where I had absolutely no
background whatsoever. But I sunk my teeth into
it, and as a result I worked for Senator Mack for
six years."
After working for Mack, Savary Taylor had a
brief stint as general counsel for the Joint Eco-
nomics Committee before joining the American

Orlando provides an interesting opportu-
nity to meet, interact with and learn from
a number of federal judges at a no-cost
Federal Judicial Roundtable.
The theme of this year's event is "Hear-
say, Hearsay, Hearsay!" and it is designed to
improve your understanding of hearsay and

of physician, health-care and pharmaceutical
issues as well as changes in the legislative agenda
brought by the recent political shift in Congress.

This realization sparked another interest in Krieger who received his
BA. from Princeton University in biology while also having a signifi-
cant amount of psychological experience- lawyer health and personal
"Everyone in this room has people that hate them and love them,"
Krieger said. "So don't put too much focus on what'they' think. Look at
your own self, your own integrity-for the keys to your life and career
Krieger and his research partner have conducted various studies on
human need satisfaction and personal well-being and have found that
intrinsic values-including developing one's self, helping and relating to
others-are the key to being a successful professional. Results from this
research conducted on students in top-tier and fourth-tier law schools
showed that students from the fourth-tier law schools felt more autono-
mous and respected, which translated into a higher passing rate for the
bar and less stress during the first job out of law school.
In fact, this study which will appear in the prestigious Personality and
Social Psychology Bulletin in June, showed that the basic needs of the
fourth-tier students were more satisfied than a higher ranked school.
Krieger said said the research showed the enormous influence that these
psychological factors have on a professional's performance, vitality and
personal well-being-all keys to a successful career.

He has been conducting seminars on professional responsibility and
professionalism since 1991 and has published booklets for law students
on stress, values and career choices that are used at 100 law schools in the
United States, Canada, and Australia.
"It is important to focus on the positive side of things and to change
your values when something is not right," Krieger advised. "Every choice
we make has consequences, and once you have this kind of information,
