UF Levin College of Law unveils environmental fellowship

Posted by Robyn, June 2, 2013

levinA new scholarship program at the UF Levin College of Law has been created to support law school graduates who want a career championing the environment and helping draft public policy to protect the Everglades.

The E. Thomas Rumberger Everglades Foundation Fellowship Programs is named after Tom Rumberger, founder of Rumberger, Kirk and Caldwell law firm and the lead counsel for the Everglades Foundation since 1989. The goal was to create something that honored his love of the law, UF and the environment, said Jon Mills, UF’s law school dean emeritus and director of the Center for Government Responsibility at the law school.

“The idea is to get a person every year who has that sense of concern for public service and for the Everglades and environmental issues,” said Mills, a longtime friend of Rumberger’s who worked on several landmark environmental cases together.

    hopefully the candidates are vetted to prevent the opposition getting in and using the scholarship to further the destruction of Florida via the highest bidding employer after graduation.
