U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT RANKS UF LAW THE NO. 1 LAW SCHOOL IN FLORIDA AND 41ST OVERALL.
“When I came to UF Law, I expected a strong educational framework and the tools I needed to pursue a career in the legal profession. I did not imagine the financial resources I would receive, the incredible personal connections that I would make with my professors, and the support of an extensive alumni network, all of which were instrumental in being able to secure multiple dream-job offers.”
— Speaking to the UF Law board of trustees. She starts in September at Skadden’s world headquarters in Times Square.
“If you go to UF Law School, right out of the bat, you have a lot of credibility just having graduated from this law school. It truly is the premier law school in this state and if you want to practice in the state of Florida, this is the place to be. So you automatically get a bump up in your stature just from graduating from here. It was my UF Law degree that helped me get an internship with a federal judge, which then helped me get a job at the State Attorney’s Office, which then helped me become a criminal defense attorney. So, it was a very important foundation that really led me on to a lot of other things.”
“My degree from UF has helped me in my career in that, it’s one, a requirement to be in the JAG Corp, but it also has given me lots of different skillsets, such as trial advocacy and motion writing, that’s really prepared me for my first rotation in trial services. It’s helped me learn how to think analytically, critically and all the things that the Navy JAG Corps is really looking for.”Alumni
THERE ARE 21,000 LIVING UF LAW ALUMNI THROUGHOUT FLORIDA, THE NATION, AND IN NEARLY 50 COUNTRIES WORLDWIDE.
