(VER 30 YEARS OF GLOBAL INITIATIVES, ACCOMPLISHMENTS


As the state's senior legal and public policy research institute, the
Center for Governmental Responsibility (CGR) of the
University of Florida Levin College of Law since 1972 has been
the innovator for environmental law, democracy and governance,
and social policy research.

The Center has grown from initial studies on governance issues
to an organization with experience in wide-ranging local, state,
federal and international programs and projects. CGR lawyers
and faculty have affected more public policy decisions
during the past 30 years than any other Florida organization
of its nature and scope.

Procedurally, the Center is organized to accomplish its objectives
- including research, proposals and implementation through
three methods:
1) Contracting directly with clients such as local, state
and national governments; Florida courts, lawyers and the
U.S. Supreme Court; governmental agencies (water
management districts, administrative agencies, planning
councils); colleges and universities; foundations and
private enterprise.
2) Working cooperatively with the Levin College of Law and
its faculty and staff, with UF centers and departments, and
with colleges and universities throughout the state and
world.
3) Teaching students in such areas as land use and planning,
ecosystem management, sustainable development, environ-
mental justice, emerging democracies, state and federal
constitutional issues, European Community law, health
policy, international trade law, bioethics, election and
campaign finance law, historic preservation, conflict resolu-
tion, and areas of the law including family, health, environ-
ment, water and poverty. Students also are provided unique
opportunities to conduct research with staff attorneys on
issues of local, state, national and international importance.

Administratively, Center work is organized as follows:
ENVIRONMENTAL LAW DIVISION
Attorneys and staff are leading experts on and direct
research projects in such areas as environmentally
sensitive ecosystems, protection of endangered species,
land use and planning, coastal management, ground-
water and wetlands protection, and water law.


* DEMOCRACY & GOVERNANCE DIVISION
In Haiti, Brazil, Poland and Central America as well as
Florida and the United States the Center plays a vital
role in assisting democratic reforms. Through its Center
for American Law Studies at Warsaw University, CGR
has for more than 30 years helped local, regional and
national governmental officials in a joint U.S.-Poland
experiment begun in that country 16 years before the fall
of Communism.

* SOCIAL POLICY DIVISION
The Center's initial work in social policy began in 1980,
when The Florida Bar commissioned research on "Legal
Needs of the Poor and Under-represented Citizens of
Florida." During the last quarter century, this
Division's work has expanded to encompass public
policy research in the areas of health care and ethics -
including juvenile justice, guardianship reform, senior
citizen programs, divorce mediation and child support
enforcement. Three major initiatives include operation
of the Bar's Public Service Law Fellowships, ongoing
support of and student externships for Three Rivers
Legal Services' low-income clients, and health care law
externships at UF's Shands teaching hospital.


Working with Warsaw University law faculty, the Center for
Governmental Responsibility operates the Center for American Law
Studies that annually trains hundreds of Polish law students and
attorneys in various aspects of the U.S. legal system.









ENVIRONMENTAL LAW DIVISION

One of the first major initiatives of what is now the Center for Governmental
Responsibility was in the environmental field when CGR attorneys in 1972
successfully argued for release of more than $6 million in federal pollution control
funds impounded by the President of the United States.

Over the last 30 years, CGR environmental efforts have grown to include direction of
projects throughout Florida, Central America, Poland, Brazil and Africa. Division staff
have developed international reputations in water law, environmentally sensitive
ecosystems and estuaries, land use and planning, coastal management, groundwater
and wetlands protection, endangered species, and regulation of pesticides.

Another major CGR initiative was formation of the University of Florida
Conservation Clinic, part of the law school's Environmental and Land Use Law
Certificate Program (also formed in part through CGR efforts). The Clinic allows law
students working with students from relevant departments within UF graduate schools
to team with governmental and private sector entities to research and advance area,
state, national and international
conservation objectives.


Through CGR, the annual Public Interest Environmental


Through CGR, law students in
1994 established the annual
Public Interest Environmental
Conference which has grown to a
national event featuring leading
U.S. and international experts
discussing current environmental
law issues and solutions.

Efforts of this Division have
resulted in major research and
adoption of environmental


Conference was begun in 1994 and has grown to a programs, policies and procedures
national event with global experts addressing vital issues.
in countries throughout the world
while at the same time providing practical experience for hundreds of UFLaw students
who have become some of today's leading environmental attorneys, policy makers and
advocates.


Multiple Agencies Provide Grants
Among organizations providing grants for CGR environmental research are the
United States Information Agency, Conservation International, Wildlife
Conservation Society, U.S. Agency for International Development, The Florida Bar,
U.S. Fish & Wildlife, McIntosh Foundation, Florida Center for Environmental
Studies, MacArthur Foundation, U.S. Department of the Interior, National Parks
Service, Nature Conservancy, Caribbean Conservation Corporation, U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers and Florida SeaGrant.

JcEMOCRACY & GOVERNANCE DIVISION


Poland, Brazil, Haiti, Latin America, the
United States and Florida key locations
where the Center for Governmental
Responsibility's Democracy & Governance
Division has advanced aspects of the
American legal system and the Rule of Law.

For more than 30 years, this CGR Division
has had as its keystone project the effort to
help Poland become "a partner for America
and a model for the world." Working with
the Warsaw University Faculty of Law &
Administration, CGR began a joint U.S.-
Poland experiment 16 years before the fall
of Communism. Today, the resulting Center
for American Law Studies graduates
annually an average of 100 Polish attorneys
as trained practitioners in the American
legal system.

CGR continues its significant role in issues
of Florida governance. In 2004-05, staff
worked with the Florida Supreme Court's
Committee on Privacy & Court Records to
provide recommendations on balancing
the state's public record requirements and
privacy issues. CGR previously assisted the
state's Constitution Revision Committee
with research in 1977-78 and 1997-98.


Growing in importance is the annual "Legal
and Policy Issues in the Americas" conference
initiated by CGR in 2000 to bring together key
international and U.S. governmental, legal,
educational and corporate officials to examine
and debate pressing Latin American legal and
policy issues. (The seminar is jointly sponsored
by UF Warrington College of Business' Center for
International Business Education and Research.)

An extension of the 2003 Conference was the
creation of the Rule of Law in the Americas
Program to provide assistance on effective
administration of justice and judicial reforms
throughout the region. Included is the annual
American Law for Brazilian Judges,
Prosecutors & Attorneys summer program.

CGR's Haiti Conflict Resolution Program,
sponsored by the U.S. Information Agency
and begun in 1996, trains select representa-
tives in conflict resolution and mediation -
including teaching youth about alternatives to
violence in settling disputes.

UFLaw students benefit from a for-credit
extemship program at the Florida Supreme
Court started by CGR in 1997. Participants
work for a term in the office of a Court Justice
or with the central staff on appellate law issues.


INTERNATIONAL TRADE
LAW PROGRAM BUILDS
ON UFLAW STRENGTHS

Realizing that
success in the
international trade
arena in today's
global market is
central to the
nation's economic Powell
health, CGR in 2000 established
an International Trade Law
Program built on the UF College of
Law's strong slate of global activities.

Led by long-time federal trade
negotiator and chief counsel
Steve Powell, the program serves
as a national model for academic
interaction with business, legal
and governmental communities.

Seminars for business leaders and
attorneys, academic courses on
international trade topics, research
on trade issues important to Florida
businesses, and technical
assistance to developing countries
in implementing trade obligations
are among program accomplish-
ments. Its core of international
trade law courses rival those of
leading top-tier U.S. law schools,
and work is underway on a training
module, "Doing Business in the
U.S.," for use with government
officials and exporter associations
from Brazil and other countries.


Panelists for CGR's 2004 "Legal & Policy Issues in the Americas" conference and advocates of CGR's proposed
Center for Judicial Reform and Rule of Law in the Americas included (from left) past ABA President Martha Barnett;
Juan Vargas Viancos, executive director, Justice Studies Center of the Americas, Chile; former U.S. Attorney General
Janet Reno; CGR Director Jon Mills; and Paulo Roberto Pereira de Souza, State University of Maringa, Brazil.









SOCIALL POLICY DIVISION


In 1980, The Florida Bar asked the Center
for Governmental Responsibility to
research legal issues of the state's poor and
indigent, and the result was a ground-
breaking report: "The Legal Needs of the
Poor and Under-represented Citizens of
Florida: An Overview" and the
formation of CGR's Social Policy Division.

In the 25 years since, the Division staff
and its expertise have expanded to
encompass poverty issues, juvenile justice
and dependency, victim advocacy, health
care for the indigent, elder law and abuse,
gender and race bias, feminist jurispru-
dence, medical ethics and law, immigrant


The late Alfredo Bahena, farmworker activist, is among
community leaders who worked with CGR research fac
Florida environmental justice concerns, including pestic


rights, child support enforcement, and
environmental justice. Changes and
additions to Florida legislation, policies
and procedures have resulted through
Division work with the Florida Supreme
Court, Florida Legislature and the Florida
Bar Foundation.

A major CGR initiative was assistance
with formation and ongoing operation of
Three Rivers Legal Serivces, a non-profit
corporation providing free legal services
to low-income clients in a 12-county area.
Each year, through its operation of The
Florida Bar Foundation's Public Service
Fellowship Program (see sidebar), CGR
provides up to two Fellows a
year to help Three Rivers' staff.

Starting in 2000, Division
specializations expanded to
include health law and policy,
with research focus including
racial disparities in delivery of
health care, prescription drugs
issues and clinical research
ethics and liability. Courses
taught by Division staff include
Bioethics, Genetics and the Law,
Health Care Finance and
Delivery, Medical Technology
and the Law, Environmental
Js justice, and Poverty Law.

Division are Florida Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services, Bureau of Criminal
Justice Assistance, Florida House Committee on Corrections/Probation/Parole, National
Council on Family Relations, Florida State Commission on Child Support, Florida Lung

(ASE STUDIES

'HISTORIC PRESERVATION: BOON TO FLORIDA'


Historic preservation helps bring an
additional $4.2 billion a year to the Florida
economy and more than 120,000 jobs a year
to Sunshine State workers, according to
research by the Levin College of Law Center
for Governmental Responsibility.

Commissioned by the Florida Department of
State and conducted by staffs of CGR and the
Center for Urban Policy Research at Rutgers
University, the study is the first of its kind in
Florida to research the impact of historical
preservation. The study "provides striking
evidence Florida's investment in the preser-
vation and protection of historic places
and according to the legacy of the cultures
that created it, are paying huge dividends,"
said then-Secretary of State Jim Smith.


During 2000, more than 123,000 jobs and
$657 million in taxes were generated from
Florida historic preservation activities, visits.


"Historic preservation produces a wonderful return for the public money invested and
is one of the most efficient ways public funds can be invested," according to study
authors Timothy McLendon and JoAnn Klein of CGR.

Florida Trust for Historic Preservation (850.228.8128)


CENTER ASSISTS WELFARE REFORM
IN FLORIDA, UNITED STATES

Through its Social Policy Division, the
Center played a vital part in welfare reform
in Florida and across the country. With a
consortium of faculty from other Florida
universities, CGR staff researched impact of
the proposed Work and Gain Economic
Self-Sufficiency (W.A.G.E.S.) Act -
designed to replace the open-ended federal
welfare entitlement program that was
adopted in Florida in the mid-1990s. [In
2000, the Florida Workplace Innovation Act
replaced WA.G.E.S. with Welfare Transition
Program (WTN)]. CGR received funds from
the Kellogg Foundation / Children's Defense
Fund to create the "Florida Advocacy
Project: Making WA.G.E.S. Work for the
Poor," resulting in publication of
Advocates' Manual and training /
monitoring in Florida communities on the
welfare program transition.


CENTRAL AMNERIC PROJECT E\IMPLE OF CGR INITATI\ ES

One of the most dramatic examples of global success of the Center for
Governmental Responsibility and its Environmental Division is the
ilesoamerican Environmental Law Program and Conservation Law Initiative.
Accomplishments include establishing a regional network of environmental law
organizations in Central America and ilexico, agreement to manage shared
sea turtle population between Costa Rica and Panama, legal framework for
ancient Maya temple complex spanning border of Belize and Guatemala, and
procedures to advance bioregional policy in Maya Forest shared by Belize /
Mexico / Guatemala.
Funding and support have come from the John D. and Catherine T. -lacArthur
Foundation, U.S. Agency for International Development, and U.S. Department
of State's Man and the Biosphere Program.












CGR CONSERVATION CLINIC

CGR's Conservation Clinic maintains a
varied portfolio of international conser-
vation projects, principally in the Latin
America and Caribbean Region. Clients
S- have included the World Resources
"- Institute, Forest Management Trust,

Fellowships enable attorneys, graduate students and scientists from
Brazil, Colombia and Mexico to work with law students from the
United States and Costa Rica on projects addressing regional and
domestic conservation.

Core support for the international activities is from the John D. and
Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.


EXPANDED HEALTH EMPHASIS
RESULTS IN IMPRESSIVE WORK
In 1999-2000, Center officials expanded specializations to include
health law and policy with impressive results in three key areas: law
school courses, research and publications, and cooperative efforts
with other UF entities.

Research has included work on AIDS drugs in South Africa, legal
issues pertaining to end-of-life decision making, and publication by
CGR Research Associate Barbara Noah and UF Research Foundation
Professor Lars Noah of the casebook, Law, Medicine and Medical
Technology: Cases and Materials.

Courses made available to UFLaw students include Bioethics & the Law,
Health Care Finance & Delivery, Medical Technology & the Law, and a
seminar in Ethical, Legal and Social Implications of Genetics. Health
