RPPTL reaches out to students.
A similar liaison reception was held February 3 at the Florida State University College of Law, where 40 students asked questions about the transition from law school to practicing real property, probate and trust law.
And those giving answers represented a good cross section of perspectives, from lawyers ranging from two years to two decades of experience: Phil Baumann, of Tampa; former RPPTL Chair Bruce Stone of Miami; Mike Swaine of Sebring, who presently serves as director of the Real Property Division of the section and whose son attends FSU's law school; Christina Sutch and Charles Nash of Melbourne; Bruce Weiner and Curt Hunter to Tallahassee.
"I have received nothing but positive feedback from my students who attended the reception," Stephanie Redfearn, director of Career Planning and Placement at FSU's College of Law, wrote in a thank-you letter to Baumann.
"They seemed to really appreciate the insight on practicing in the areas of real property, probate and trust law from both the new and senior attorneys. Additionally, the discussion about whether or not students should pursue an LLM prior to working tin the legal field was enlightening to me, as well."
