UF Law Remembers Catherine Barclift
Catherine Barclift (pictured left) will be remembered not
just for her intellect, but for her off-the-chart energetic
"Her smile was absolutely dazzling," Legal Skills Professor Tracy Rambo
said. "When she smiled, you couldn't quite tell what she was thinking, but
you knew it was something extraordinary, and just a bit mischievous. She
was delightful-sassy and spunky, in the very best of ways. Her death
touched everyone-those who knew her well, and those who had just met
her. She will be missed, and she will not be forgotten."
A group of UF Law students painted a
section of the SW 34th Street wall in
Barclift's memory (pictured left) on Friday,
SNov. 9. Read Aline Baker's story on the
SLOIN Mwall painting here. Barclift, a first-year law
CATNEMNE ARCLIFT student from Fort Myers, died Nov. 6, one
day after being hit by an SUV while
jogging at the intersection of SW 34th
Street and Radio Road.
The funeral will be Tuesday, Nov. 13, at 5 p.m. at the Covenant Presbyterian
Church in Fort Myers (2439 McGregor Boulevard). A bus will be provided to
attend the service for anyone who is able to attend. It will leave the law
school parking lot at noon. Please be on time so that additional rides can be
organized, if needed. The family welcomes as many people at the service as
possible; your presence will be appreciated. Food and drink is allowed on the
bus. The bus is made possible by donations from all of you through Sections

Career Spotlight: Juliet M. Roulhac
When it comes to UF Law alums powering up the legal
profession all across the state, Juliet M. Roulhac (JD
87) is leading the charge as one of Florida Power and
Light's senior attorneys. Roulhac, who serves both on
the UF Law Board of Trustees and The Florida Bar's
Board of Governors, has been with the General
Counsel's office of FPL for the past eight years. She
was an active student while in law school, taking part in
moot court competitions, and was a leader in the Black
Law Students Association.
"Being on the moot court really allowed me to think on my feet and build
confidence, which worked out well because the experience led me into
something I would eventually do," she said. "Without the experience I may
have never realized how much I love litigation."
