UF Levin College of Law Commemorates
Constitution Day

The University of Florida Levin College of Law
celebrated Constitution Day on Sept. 17 by
honoring the civil rights pioneers responsible
for changing the course of history for minority
students. "Today we start a new year-long
effort to remember and archive the struggle
for desegregation," said Pedro Malavet, UF
College of Law professor and chair of the
Constitution Day planning committee. "We can
not possibly understand the significance of our
current, diverse student body unless we
remember and acknowledge the truly heroic
individual struggle these men and women
endured."

Florida Law Review Breaks Ground With
Multimedia Article

For the first time in history, the Florida Law
Review has published a multimedia article.
The article, Constitutional Advocacy Explains
Constitutional Outcomes, was written by
Stephen. A. Higginson, an associate professor
at Loyola University New Orleans. Higginson
included 178 links to audio recordings of oral
arguments in front of the Supreme Court.
"Very few people are doing that," Higginson
said about multimedia articles.

Judge Stanley Griffis Speaks About His
Transition From Law Student to Judge

Judge Stanley H. Griffis III spoke
about his transition from law
student to circuit judge Friday to a
group of law students in the Bailey
Courtroom. He advised students to
try to get trial experience early in
their careers and to align
themselves with good, ethical
lawyers. "What I've found over the
years is important. You need to try to find someone who does
two different things for you," said Griffis, who handles juvenile
court and family cases for the Eighth Judicial Circuit. "Number
one is going to teach you the nuts and bolts of how to litigate,
if you need to litigate... The second thing you need to look at is
finding a lawyer who is going to be a good mentor, an ethical
mentor."

Chesterfield Smith Classroom, 1st Floor, East end of the College
of Law Courtyard. Please join us and you may call Rick Donnelly
(273-0703) or Rachel Inman (273-0921) if you have any
questions about the program.
