The Tallahassee Bar Association and its Young Lawyers Division hosted over 140 members of the local legal community including judges, lawyers, FSU College of Law students and faculty on Tuesday, September 2 at Capital City Country Club for the Third Annual Table for 8. This event offered an opportunity for Judges, attorneys and law students to enjoy frank and informative conversation in a relaxed environment.

The enormous success was due to the strong turnout and participation by Judges and senior attorneys who brought years of experience and insight to the table as well at the participation of young lawyers and law students who contributed new, fresh ideas. Tables at the event blended judges, senior attorneys, young lawyers and law students who shared stories, concerns and lessons learned through their respective legal experiences.

“Great job on the Tables for Eight last night! I really enjoyed the discussion at our table and seeing so many judges, lawyers, and law students in attendance. That is one of the best events we hold every year! Robert S. Cohen, Director and Chief Judge, Division of Administrative Hearings

“I am externing under the sponsorship of Will Hall, Assistant State Attorney so learning even more about law school, opportunities in the legal profession and great tips on best practices getting a job was great.

College of Law hosted Mock Trial competitionThe FSU College of Law Mock Trial Team expresses its gratitude to the TBA members who served as jurors and judges for twelve law schools from around the country competing at the second FSU College of Law National Civil Mock Trial Invitational March 21-23. The law school could not host an event of this magnitude without your help. We hope you enjoyed seeing a water bottling company take on an agricultural corporation in a case involving sinkholes, dry springs, and the Battle of Natural Bridge reenactment. Next year’s problem promises to be a doozy as well! We also thank Judges Bruce McKibben, Karen Gievers, Barbara Hobbs, Stewart Parsons, and Lawrence Stevenson for presiding over some of the rounds.
