policy. Melton, director of the Clemson
University Institute on Family and
Neighborhood Life, visited the Levin College of
Law on Nov. 24, to present to students and
faculty, "What's Wrong with Child Protection

J.J. Wilson: Becoming a legislative

For recent UF Law grad J.J. Wilson (JD 07), a
change of heart in law school has led to her
landing a competitive job with a United States
Senator. Wilson now serves as a legislative
F correspondent and staff attorney for Senator
Arlen Specter, from Pennsylvania. "When I
applied to law school I did so with the intent
of becoming an NCAA Compliance Officer for a
collegiate athletic program," Wilson said.
"However, it is very easy to get caught up in
'1Lism' and so I found myself looking more to public interest law.
After interviewing with various government agencies in Florida, I
found myself looking more and more to 'the Hill.'"

News Briefs

London study abroad extends application deadline

The London Law Consortium at
Florida State University London
Study Centre (Jan. 12 May 1,
2009) is still accepting applications
due to lower than expected
enrollment this year. They are
holding the program and
continuing to accept students who
have passports for the next
several weeks. They will not be able to accept students into the
British Legal Methods Clinical Course because of the requirement
of a visa for participation in that program (which takes several
weeks to process with the Consulate), but all other courses are
available, and students in those courses can enter on their
regular passport. If you are interested in this opportunity,
program booklets, which include the application and
requirements, are available at the Student Affairs receptionist
desk. Applications are due to Director of Student Programs
Michelle Ocepek no later than 5 p.m. on Dec. 3.

Time is running out to donate to the 2008 Class Gift

As graduation approaches, and
students look to the future, they
are also leaving a legacy. Thirty
percent of the spring graduating
class participated in the class gift
effort and have pledged $59,000
to date. A list of the fall student
donors will be displayed at
graduation, but it's not too late to
make your gift. If you would like to donate to the class gift effort,
contact Sara Cocolin at 352-273-0640 or
Thank you for participating in this wonderful legacy and best of
luck in your future endeavors in the law profession.
