Message from the Incoming Law Student Division President, Danielle Kaye
When deciding to pursue a legal career, law students across the state of Florida are taking a unique journey to get to where they are and where they want to be. As the incoming President of The Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division, Law Student Division, I have the privilege of getting to work with an amazing group of leaders from all across the State, in helping to further the mission of the Law Student Division, and that is to bridge the gap between law school and their future legal careers.
My name is Danielle Kaye and I am a third-year Law Student at Nova Southeastern University, Shepard Broad Law Center. As last-year’s Division Secretary, I have witnessed the benefit of a strong connection between the current Division President, the Executive Board, and the Governors at each of the twelve fellow Chapters. I am honored to continue my involvement on a larger scale and to have the privilege of serving as the Division President for the 2013-2014 year.
Our Division is tasked every year with playing a major role in facilitating a smooth transition between law school and the practice of law in Florida. This year will be no exception. Together with the The Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division leadership, I have worked all summer and will continue to work the entire year to ensure that the Law Student Division provides Florida law students with networking, mentoring, legal education, and community service opportunities with practicing attorneys. Part of my goals for this year are to expand the Division’s mentoring program at each of the twelve Florida law schools and to team up with the Center for Professionalism to educate Florida law students on the importance of professionalism through a variety of educational events.
Since our founding in 2007, the Law Student Division has grown immensely. In the last year alone, thousands of Florida law students have joined and have benefited from networking opportunities, mentoring, scholarships, and educational programs that are exclusive to our student members.
I am looking forward to the upcoming year and to be working with The Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division leadership, the Law Student Division Board of Governors, and the Division’s current and prospective members. Once again, it is my honor and pleasure to serve the members of The Law Student Division as President and I am excited for the year ahead!
