Citizenship Day was held at Coastal law on Saturday, and it was a rousing success. Citizenship day was a joint event sponsored by the Jacksonville Bar Association, American Immigration Lawyers Association and Coastal clinical and pro bono programs. More than 70 student and attorney volunteers were able to assist immigrants filling out citizenship applications. Great work by all, including all of the support staff that helped make the event happen.
The deadline for applying for clinical programs and credit bearing externships for the fall semester is this Friday, April 22nd. Applications are available on the website and in the Clinic Office, Room 255.
Finally, during the weekend of April 1-3, students from Florida Coastal traveled to the University of Virginia for the annual charity law school softball tournament. One Men’s division team and one Co-ed team represented Coastal. Over 120 law school teams competed in the tournament, and Coastal’s participation helped the tournament raise over $20,000 that will be donated to the Children, Youth, and Family Services, Inc. of Charlottesville. The Men’s division team, led by Patrick Sullivan, made it to the championship game but lost to UVA. The Co-ed division, led by Travis Parrott, beat Suffolk in the championship winning the division for the second year in a row and fourth championship in five years. Matthew Bodie won the Home Run Derby at UVA for the second year in a row.
Have a great week everyone.
