Introduction to Law School and the Profession 2014
Aug. 12-15, 2014
Dear 2014 Entering Class,
Thank you for registering for the Introduction to Law School & the Profession (ILSP) program. I am
excited that you have chosen to attend the University of Florida Levin College of Law. Attendance at
ILSP events is mandatory. Your study of law will begin on Tuesday, August 12 at the Reitz Union,
located at 655 Reitz Union Drive on the University of Florida campus. I am looking forward to your
arrival and the Office of Student Affairs shall do our very best to get you off to an excellent start.
On Tuesday, August 12, ILSP will begin in the morning and will feature speakers to begin introducing
you to the College of Law and the legal profession. On this day, you will receive your ILSP materials,
information on the policies and regulations governing your legal education and the profession, and you
will have the opportunity to get to know your Ambassador. All new students are assigned to an ILSP
Team which is led by an Ambassador. The Ambassadors are current students who have been selected
for their interest in helping members of the entering class succeed. Your Ambassador will assist and
guide you through your first year. On Wednesday, August 13, the ILSP will take place at the Levin
College of Law, where the focus will be on academics and the skills needed to succeed in law school.
That evening, there may be a reception at the Reitz Union. On Thursday, August 14, you will
participate in a half day community service project in the Gainesville community. Finally, on Friday,
August 15, there will be some morning sessions and a 1L Lunch Social hosted by the Student
Ambassadors at the Levin College of Law. More detailed information about the ILSP week, including
an up-to-date schedule, is available on the Student Affairs website:
The ILSP will be a very busy time as you will be taking care of final details before your regularly
scheduled classes begin on Monday, August 18, 2014. Thus I encourage you to have completed your
move-in activities before August 12, so that you can focus on your education once you begin. Please
remember that all non-University of Florida graduates must forward an official transcript from your
undergraduate and any professional school degrees by Monday, August 18, to the Office of
Admissions, 201 Criser Hall, P. O. Box 114000, University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida 32611.
Parking is exceedingly difficult at this large university so please consider that when making your
housing arrangements. Our web page has specific information regarding the law school carpool
program and information regarding the bus lines that stop near the law school.
The Levin College of Law is committed to ensuring that your environment is supportive and
encouraging so that you may make the most of the opportunities offered to you. I look forward to
meeting you during ILSP.
