Photo: UF Law’s Gator Nation has dominated The Florida Bar, the nation’s second largest, with more than half of the presidents in its history. UF Law has also produced five presidents of the American Bar Association since 1973; that’s more than any other law school during the same period. Pictured are four former presidents of The Florida Bar plus the Florida Bar’s executive director. From left are Gwynne Young (JD 74), Scott Hawkins (JD 83), Eugene K. Pettis (JD 85), Executive Director John F. “Jack” Harkness (JD 69) and Mayanne Downs (JD 87).
The accomplishments, involvement and support of alumni have helped distinguish UF Law as one of the strongest alumni bases in the nation. More than 23,000 alumni have graduated since the college’s founding in 1909, representing UF throughout Florida, the nation, and more than 30 countries worldwide.
It is an honor and a privilege to join the University of Florida Levin College of Law. With an alumni base of more than 20,000 strong, the opportunities to stay connected in truly meaningful ways are plentiful. As the alumni and development staff makes our way across Florida and to different parts of the country, we look forward to building the Gator network to even greater heights.
While UF Law moves forward under the leadership of Dean Rosenbury, the involvement and dedication of our alumni will help determine how fast and how high we can climb. Thank you in advance for all of the ways you support the faculty and staff we are so privileged to serve.
