The Florida Law Review’s second installment of the Allen L. Poucher Legal Education Series featured five former Florida governors who spoke about Florida’s past and future on Friday. Govs. Reubin Askew, Charlie Crist, Bob Graham, Buddy MacKay and Bob Martinez were joined by former Florida Law Review editor-in-chief and UF Law alumnus Ben Diamond (JD 03), who served as moderator. The event was held in front of more than 600 at the UF Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.

Friday afternoon, black leadership was honored with the celebration of 50 years since the graduation of W. George Allen (JD 62), the first black graduate of UF Law and of the University of Florida. A diversity panel was followed by a program and reception featuring national and state leaders as well as a plaque unveiling to honor Allen.
