President Dori Foster-Morales is urging Bar members to follow her lead and hire one or more of the 3,000 law students whose lives have been upended by repeated delays of the bar exam.

A University of Florida law school alumnus, Foster-Morales made the plea at an August 21 meeting of the Criminal Law Section’s executive council.

“I have reached out to UF to get me a law student,” Foster-Morales said. “I would encourage you to bring these law students into your firms.”
