Schneider educates students on benefits of
From litigating divorces to fighting
child custody battles, family law
attorneys who handle dissolutions
of marriage are arguably held in
public opinion as some of the most
adversarial and disfavored lawyers
in the legal field. An alternative to
traditional courtroom fights to the
death, however, seeks to change
that. Pamela Schneider (JD 79), adjunct professor and longtime
divorce attorney, visited the Levin College of Law on Nov. 14 to
educate students on the benefits of collaborative divorces as
opposed to the familiar adversarial system.

Examination preparation: What to do before
The end of the semester is quickly
approaching along with the
beginning of the busy holiday
season. Therefore, it is important
Sto manage your time wisely and
have a plan in place in order to
prepare sufficiently for your
upcoming examination period. In
creating your plan, you may wish
to focus on three different categories: before the exam, during
the exam and after the exam. This week's installment of exam
preparation will focus on before the exam.
At the beginning of every week,
check out The CCS BUZZ for a
quick synopsis of programming,
recruiting, networking and
volunteer and "SHIP"
opportunities available to you.
The CCS Buzz can be found in
FlaLaw Online, via link on your
Symplicity homepage after you

S/ representatives to draw nonpartisan voting
districts seems a lot like tasking the fox to
guard the henhouse...every 10 years feathers
fly. "Reapportionment, or how we divide our
districts for the Legislature and Congress, is
S one of the most important things we do
a' because it determines who you can vote for in
your district," said Jon Mills, UF professor of
law, dean emeritus and director of the Levin
College of Law Center for Governmental Responsibility.
