In February 1999, the College of Law hosted a day-long symposium, “Defining and Refining Professionalism: Assessing the Roles and Regulation of Lawyers in the 21st Century.” The symposium featured some of the country’s top legal scholars addressing the organizing concepts of lawyering and professionalism outside the courtroom. Also in 1999, an $815,000 grant from the U.S. Agency for International Development enabled the College of Law’s Caribbean Law Institute to continue developing model legislation for Caribbean nations in alternative dispute resolution, environmental law and fair competition. The institute was founded in 1988 as a joint project of FSU and the University of the West Indies, Barbados, to promote law reform. Also, the Winter 1999 issue of FSU Law magazine featured an article about students Kit Conrad (’99) and Christina Galindo (’99), interns at the College of Law’s Children’s Advocacy Center who negotiated enhancements that improved life for Tallahassee disabled citizens. Conrad, wheelchair bound himself, noticed the sidewalks and curbs in Tallahassee were in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. With the help of a fellow intern, Conrad evaluated 282 curb sites in downtown Tallahassee—measuring the slope of each cut. The survey found only 42% were ADA compliant. Galindo also saw disability access issues when she surveyed a newly constructed city amphitheater in Kleman Plaza. After an enormous amount of time, red tape and public records requests, the students were successful. As a result of their work, the City of Tallahassee agreed to repair noncompliant curbs and add curb cuts where none existed, changing city policy. The city also repaired deficiencies at the amphitheater, lowering the stage to allow wheelchair access and adding a seating area that accommodated wheelchairs.
