UF Law Spring Lecture examines outcome of
reverse discrimination case

Exploring the decision and opinions of a
controversial U.S. Supreme Court case
involving reverse discrimination will be the
focus of the University of Florida Levin College
of Law's Center for the Study of Race and
Race Relations Spring Lecture. On
Wednesday, March 31, at 11:45 a.m., Robert
S. Chang, professor of law and founding
director of the Fred T. Korematsu Center for
Law and Equality at Seattle University School
of Law, will examine Ricci v. DeStefano. The free lecture, titled
"Ricci, Race and Equal Protection," is open to the public and will
be held in UF Law's new Martin H. Levin Advocacy Center room
100. A reception in the faculty dining room (Bruton-Geer Hall,
room 153) immediately follows the lecture.

Fox-Isicoff discusses business and corporate

The Immigration Law Association
hosted Tammy Fox-Isicoff on
Tuesday for a presentation on
business and corporate
immigration. But while Fox-Isicoff
is now an expert in the subject,
she began her career in
immigration law on the
enforcement side of the equation.
It did not take long for Fox-Isicoff to find success. Having started
with the Department of Justice as an INS trial attorney, she soon
became a special assistant U.S. attorney for immigration. Despite
this, she wasn't completely satisfied with her work. A good deal
of that came from seeing first-hand how unpleasant immigration
enforcement can be.

Jacobs asks "Should drugs be legalized?"

When Professor James Jacobs first
started hearing about drug
legalization, he was intrigued. But
those advocating for it could not
give him answers he was looking
for. James spoke for the Federalist
Society on March 3 about the
effects legalization would have. "I
started working on this when I
heard people that I respected as very thoughtful and bright in
general proclaiming proudly that they were for drug legalization

and that got my antennae up," said Jacobs, Chief Justice Warren
E. Burger Professor of Constitutional Law and the courts director
of the Center for Research in Crime and Justice at the New York
University School of Law.
