Loren Turner joins faculty as reference librarian, adjunct professor
Loren Turner joined the UF Law faculty as a reference librarian and adjunct professor of law. She serves as a library liaison to faculty and provides research reference services to faculty, students and members of the public. She is teaching legal research to 1Ls during the fall semester.
Turner earned a bachelor of arts degree in Italian Studies from Loyola University in Chicago and J.D. from American University Washington College of Law. After graduating from law school, Turner practiced law at a boutique law firm in downtown Chicago specializing in family law litigation.
After a couple years of practicing law, she advanced her research and writing interests by transitioning from practice to the field of law librarianship and returned to school to earn her master of science (M.S.) in library and information science from the University of Illinois. While pursuing her master’s, Turner worked at the Pritzker Legal Research Center at Northwestern University School of Law.
She said she chose UF Law because of the support the library receives from the UF Law administration, faculty, and alumni.
“I look forward to further developing my professional expertise through my work with students and faculty here at UF Law and the greater UF community,” Turner said.
