Over the weekend, one of our alums got some positive coverage of his Note. David Karp (class of 2009) was interviewed by Tony Mauro of the National Law Journal for a piece entitled “Does Thomas’ Silence Thwart Advocacy?”.
David’s Note was titled “Why Justice Thomas Should Speak at Oral Argument” and was published in our July 2009 book.

We are proud to announce Dean John C. Jeffries, Jr. will be speaking at this year’s Dunwody Distinguished Lecture in Law.
The lecture is taking place on Tuesday, February 16, 2010 at 11am in the Chesterfield Ceremonial Classroom (Room 180) at the University of Florida Levin College of Law. Dean Jeffries’s lecture is tentatively titled “Rationalizing Qualified Immunity”.
Dean Jeffries joins a long list of renown legal scholars to speak in the Dunwody lecture series, including Ronald Dworkin, Cass Sunstein, Erwin Chemerinsky, and Lawrence Lessig. In fact, our December 2009 book includes last year’s Dunwody lecture by Akhil Reed Amar entitled “Bush, Gore, Florida, and the Constitution”. More about Professor Amar’s lecture and the responses by Erwin Chemerinsky, Ellen Katz, Rick Hasen, and Nelson Lund can be found here.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. All of us at Fla. L. Rev. hope to see you there!
The Florida Law Review’s innovative approach to law review marketing has garnered high praise from Professor Cunningham. In a recent post on Concurring Opinions, Professor Cunningham had this to say:
“This inspired approach to the dissemination of academic knowledge manifests in other creative results, like this recently featured at the Faculty Lounge, a Florida Law Review piece accompanied by interactive media. I’m impressed. In fact, this effort was a factor to me when I chose to accept Florida Law Review’s publication offer over other offers. . . . In previous years, I served as Faculty Advisor to my school’s law review. If I were doing that today, I’d urge editors to look at the Florida model as a leader.”
