United States Circuit Judge Rosemary Barkett of the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals will deliver the 2007 Dunwody Distinguished Lecture in Law at 11 a.m. March 23 in the Chesterfield Smith Ceremonial Classroom at the UF Levin College of Law.

The title of Judge Barkett’s lecture is “Judicial Discretion and Judicious Deliberation.” Judge Barkett, who earned her J.D. from UF Law in 1970, was the first woman justice on the Florida Supreme Court, sitting as an associate justice from 1985 until 1992, when she was chosen by her colleagues to become the state’s first woman chief justice of that court.

The Florida Law Review Dunwody Distinguished Lecture in Law series was established by U.S. Sugar Corporation and the law firms of Dunwody, White & Landon, P.A. and Mershon, Sawyer, Johnston, Dunwody & Cole in honor of UF Law graduates Elliot and Atwood Dunwody.
