Dean’s Corner

_
_ Jeffrey S. Brand

From combating child trafficking in Haiti to convening national experts to examine campaign finance reform, the articles you’ll find in this issue of @USFLaw are emblematic of the good work being done by our students and faculty throughout the year. These activities underscore our strength as a school with a focused mission that is making a difference for our students and in the local, national, and international communities to which we connect. At the heart of all of our efforts is maximizing opportunities for students. On that note, I urge you to learn more about our new mentoring program, Connections, which is highlighted in this month’s newsletter. As our students prepare to navigate what is among the most challenging legal employment landscapes in recent memory, advice and support from USF alumni like you is invaluable. Thank you for being part of our community.

Sincerely,

Jeffrey S. Brand
