The University of Miami has a legal luminary walking around its campus these days. A year after her failed bid for governor of Florida, former U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno has taken a visiting appointment at the law school’s Center for Ethics and Public Service. Founded in 1996, the center provides ethics training to the business and legal community. It also performs such services as health care rights education and economic development training to low-income communities. Last year the center honored Senior U.S. District Judge William H. Hoeveler with its ethics and leadership award, which is now named after the veteran judge. During her one-year appointment as a visiting senior fellow, which started last month and is a volunteer position, Reno is assisting the center’s criminal justice ethics training with prosecutors’ and public defenders’ offices and with the criminal justice bar, said Anthony V. Alfieri, director of the center. He said Reno is also active in developing a program at the law school patterned after the New York-based Innocence Project, which is at the center of the current effort to extend the DNA testing deadline for prisoners and reviews cases in which DNA testing may exonerate convicts. Last week, according to Alfieri, Reno assisted in an ethics training seminar at the Miami-Dade state attorney’s office. It was attended by more than 100 assistant state attorneys. Reno, who last week gave introductory remarks before former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright’s talk at Temple Judea in Coral Gables, could not be reached for comment. Reno was Miami-Dade state attorney from 1978 to 1993 before serving eight years in the Clinton administration, as did Albright. Alfieri, who said Reno is working about three days at the center, expressed delight with Reno’s arrival. Her presence at the school, he said, will provide law school and university students “with broad professional resources in both the field of criminal justice and community service.”
