She received received her juris doctor from Columbia University in 1992, where she served as an associate editor of the Columbia Law Review.

"The Florida Justice Reform Institute, on behalf of the business community, has long called for judges who are textualists - who will say what the law is, and not what they think it should be - and who show deference to the Legislature as the rightful policymaking branch of government". It is the role of judges to apply, not to alter, the work of the people's representatives. "Unlike the country my parents fled, we are a nation of laws, not of men". She'll be the state Supreme Court's first female Cuban-American justice.

The order, dubbed "Achieving More Now for Florida's Environment", promises participation in the Florida Wildlife Commission's Harmful Algae Bloom Task Force to expedite the study of red tide's causes and impacts on the environment and human health, and instructs the South Florida Water Management District to begin the next phase of the Everglades Agricultural Area Storage Reservoir Project and for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to approve the project in line with the state's schedule. "She understands the rule of law, how important that is to a society".

Florida Senate Democratic Leader Audrey Gibson from Jacksonville said she's concerned with the lack of details in DeSantis' new directive.

Justice Lagoa has received numerous awards, including the "Outstanding Women of Color" award from the Black Law Student Association and the Caribbean Law Student Association at St. Thomas Law School.

"Equality Florida is deeply disappointed to see that LGBTQ employees and contractors have been left out of the Governor's executive order", said Joe Saunders, Senior Political Director for Equality Florida.

Man who killed police officer had been ordered to surrender AR-15
Corona started at the Davis Police Department as a part-time employee in 2016, when she was a junior college student. That was reduced to a misdemeanor after a plea, but Limbaugh spent eight days in jail and three years on probation.

"As Governors across the country establish these critical protections for LGBTQ families, this order draws a stark contrast", Saunders said. While a practicing lawyer, she was admitted to practice by the Florida Bar, the United States District Courts for the Middle and Southern Districts of Florida, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.

During his inaugural address Tuesday, DeSantis spoke about putting an end to judicial activism. She also handled a significant number of appeals.

DeSantis' Supreme Court appointments, starting on his second day in office, could ultimately be one of the most consequential moves of his governorship.

"Florida has never had a Florida Supreme Court with a majority of justices who believe in a limited role for the judiciary". Former Justice Rosemary Barkett was born in Mexico, but because her parents were of Syrian descent, she has credited former justice Raoul Cantero with being Florida's first justice of Hispanic descent. "In the world of judicial appointments, Barbara Lagoa is a home run". Cantero and current Justice Jorge Labarga are Cuban-Americans.

It was DeSantis' first selection for Supreme Court justice in what is expected to be a conservative makeover of the state's highest court. The overrepresentation is in part because one of the open seats had to be filled with a nominee who lives in the Third appellate district, which includes Miami-Dade and Monroe counties. They have three children.

Judge Lagoa is married to Paul C. Huck, Jr., an attorney.
