Polston Speaking to New 1Ls

Florida Supreme Court Justice Ricky Polston ('87) welcomed new 1Ls to campus during orientation

Last Friday, we started officially welcoming new students to campus with our orientation for LL.M. students. Joining us this semester are foreign-trained lawyers from countries including Bangladesh, China, Ghana, Haiti, Italy, Jamaica, and Spain, who are pursuing the LL.M. in American Law degree. This Monday, we began our one-week orientation for new 1Ls. Tropical Storm Fred forced us to meet virtually on Monday, but we were able to gather in person during the rest of the week. The1L orientation schedule included a welcome from Justice Ricky Polston (’87), Contracts classes, faculty panels featuring the 1L professors, sessions that allowed new students to meet 2Ls, 3Ls, and members of the administration, behind-the-scenes tours of the Florida Supreme Court, professionalism panels, and an “Inclusion & Civility in Law School and the Legal Profession” session. The 1L class is extremely impressive and I am looking forward to bragging about them in next week's issue of the newsletter. Today, we are hosting our final orientation with special programming for new transfer students. Many thanks to all of the faculty and staff members who helped orient our new students. We are delighted to welcome everyone to campus and are looking forward to an excellent year!
