Dear Alumni and Friends,

As we look to a new decade, I am in awe of our progress and humbled by our potential.

We have arrived at this moment only because of our people – diverse and ambitious students, generous and supportive alumni, rigorous and productive faculty, and creative and hardworking staff.

Together, we moved UF Law forward this year.  Among other accomplishments, we:
  • Enrolled the most highly credentialed entering JD class in our history
  • Welcomed our first class of students in our new seven-semester JD/LLM in Taxation program
  • Hired 12 new full-time faculty members
  • Unveiled a new Office of Career and Professional Development with four new full-time student advisors
  • Transformed 15,000+ square feet of Bruton-Geer Hall to create a beautiful, new student-centered space
  • Increased the percentage of students employed at graduation to 71%
  • Launched a compressed course week, with offerings from judges and our accomplished alumni
  • Expanded our Immigration Clinic and launched our Veterans and Servicemembers Legal Clinic
  • Provided more than $500,000 to students engaged in unpaid public interest work during the summer
  • Enhanced our Mental Health and Diversity programming
  • Earned the highest U.S. News ranking in our history, at 31st overall and 12th among public law schools
  • Invested in our Graduate Tax Program, maintaining our ranking as the top tax program among public law schools and third overall
  • Celebrated 110 years as Florida’s flagship law school and 20 years as UF Levin College of Law
  • Announced more than $30 million in new contributions, including a record-breaking $20 million commitment from Richard Cole to endow a health law program and leadership gifts from Fred Levin, Hugh Culverhouse, and John and Ultima Morgan to support student scholarships, facility upgrades, faculty roles, and campus programming
We are well on our way to becoming a top 10 public law school. We will soar in 2020 because of your continued support.

Thank you for your commitment to UF Law. I look forward to seeing many of you in the New Year and beyond. Happy 2020!
