The University of Florida and University of Miami Law Schools had their graduations Saturday. A bevy of new lawyers will be taking the bar in July and some of them will be lucky enough to stumble into the REGJB for their training as Assistant Public Defenders or Assistant State Attorneys. Good for them.
We feel it is every experienced lawyer's obligation to mentor a young lawyer. Give it a try. You might surprise yourself and find it a rewarding experience.
The other note worthy event was Saturday night's FACDL dine and doo-wop extravaganza at the Biltmore. The yearly get together of the elite of Miami's Criminal Defense Bar featured the instillation of
Jude "The Hammer" Faccidomo as the President of the Miami Chapter of FACDL (Motto "It's all about the dues").
The highlight of the evening was when Sacha Baron Cohen crashed the event dressed as former Judge Peter Adrian and attempted to incarcerate everyone.
Until you've seen your favourite judge and PD doing the conga, well, you haven't really...
HANG ON...WAIT A MOMENT.
David Ovalle from the Herald reports here that Clerks offices throughout the State are about to lose 31 million dollars in over due funding which means.....more waiting.
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY.
Don't forget to call your mom...even she wears robes during working hours.
