Small firms: The who, what, where and how

Sixty-one percent of our recent
graduates obtained positions with
law firms in general, and of those,
59 percent started their career
with a small to mid-sized firm (2-
50 attorneys). The strong number
of graduates who begin in small to
medium-sized firms remains
constant from year to year so it is
important not to overlook this rich source of employment
opportunities.

Last Antecedant," a legal document mandating that modifiers
must be placed directly before or directly after the words they
are modifying. You can change the terms of a contract or even
lose a case if your modifiers are misplaced. Randolph is available
Monday and Wednesdays in the Legal Writing Office from 9 a.m.
- 4 p.m. for individual consultation on writing assignments. For
questions or concerns, contact Assistant Dean of Students Kari
Mattox at mattoxk@law.ufl.edu or drop by the Office of Student
