View on the Profession

“A legal education and a J.D. provide a great entry into all kinds of interesting careers, from legal practice (in its nearly infinite varieties) to politics, policy-making, business, and, worst-case scenario, talk-show hosting. I hope students treat their careers like they treat their upper-division course selection: Do what you need to do, but also try to do both what you want and what’s meaningful to you to the extent possible. There are jobs that are merely jobs; but there’s work out there that can make the significant part of your waking life that you have to devote to it worthwhile and, hopefully, fun.”

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
