UF to host student Federalists

The University of Florida Levin College of Law’s Federalist Society Student Chapter has been selected to host the 33rd National Federalist Society Student Symposium.

The Federalist Society Student Symposium attracts hundreds of law student members from across the country each year. The conference — which will be held in the spring of 2014 — will address contemporary issues in the perennial debate concerning where to draw lines among security, freedom, and privacy.

“We are excited to have the University of Florida chapter hosting our annual student symposium for the first time,” said Eugene Meyer, Federalist Society president and CEO. “Based on our vetting process, the UF chapter’s history of achievement, and their dynamic current leadership, we are very confident that the executive committee will organize and execute a tremendous event.”

At the symposium, students are able to meet scholars, network with each other, and attend speeches, panels, and debates on pressing law and public policy issues. Scholars who have recently participated in this annual event have included: U.S. Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas, U.S. Sens. Ted Cruz and Michael Lee, numerous state and federal judges, law school professors, and legal and public policy experts.
