Collectively," presented by UF's Entertainment & Sports Law

Students: Take the library survey now

1. The law library is seeking student
k -~ LL feedback. Is the library too noisy?
Is it too cold? Do you like the
hours? Or do you think we should
be open later? Do you love the
furniture or do you hate it? Do you
love the way the study rooms
work or do you hate it? Why? The
librarians and staff need to hear
from you. We can guess that you do or don't like things, and we
can guess why, but we really don't know unless you tell us. And
we guess that there are probably things that are really obvious
that students want to be different... but they're not obvious to
librarians because we're not students. So if you want things to
change, or even if you want them NOT to change, we need to
hear from you. A survey of student satisfaction with library
services and facilities is available online until January 31.

has been extended to Jan. 22. The

Program at the Anti-Defamation
League, Florida Regional Office in Boca Raton. The Fellowship will
last 8-10 weeks, with the student committing to a minimum of 35

Southern Area Counsel. Previous fellows conducted legal and
legislative research on a broad variety of subjects including
amending Florida's hate crime law to include homelessness as a

protected category, the teaching of intelligent design in the public
school science classroom, and the scope of separation of church
and state under the Florida constitution. The fellow also handled
constituent discrimination complaints and participated in ADL
meetings, functions and events. The Yegelwel Fellowship is
limited to UF Law students who have successfully completed the
first-year required curriculum, including Constitutional Law, and
who are in good academic standing prior to beginning the
fellowship. "Successful" completion of the first-year required
curriculum means earning a passing grade in each course and
