The Honorable Anuraag “Raag” Singhal talks to FSU Law students over lunch.

On Monday, March 25, FSU Law hosted the Honorable Anuraag “Raag” Singhal, of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida, as part of our Jurist in Residence Program. Judge Singhal participated in Professor Wayne Logan’s Criminal Procedure: Adjudication class, speaking with students and answering questions, before attending a lunch with student members of several student organizations and law school journals. During the lunch, Judge Singhal spoke about striking a balance between one’s personal and professional life and the importance of federal clerkships. In the afternoon, Judge Singhal conducted mock interviews with several FSU Law students who are interested in federal clerkships before attending a reception with FSU Law faculty members and invited judges.

Judge Singhal was appointed to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District in 2019, and he served on the Seventeenth Judicial Circuit Court of Florida from 2011 to 2019. Before his service on the bench, Judge Singhal worked at a civil litigation firm, served as an assistant state attorney in Broward County, and was a successful criminal defense trial lawyer for eighteen years, during which time he handled over two hundred jury trials. Many thanks to our Career Services Office for organizing Judge Singhal’s visit—it was our pleasure to welcome him to the law school and to be able to provide students with opportunities to interact with a federal judge.
