Florida State University College of Law

Florida State University College of Law

The Florida State University College of Law offers an extraordinarily collegial environment and a sophisticated program of study that prepares students to enter the worlds of law, business, or government at the highest possible level. Students can choose from an extremely broad menu of classroom and externship experiences. Florida State has especially strong programs in business law, environmental law, and international law. In each of these areas, the school offers courses and experiences that go far beyond the basics. In addition, the law school offers certificate programs in all three specialties and an LLM program in environmental law. Florida State also offers an LLM in American Law for lawyers from around the world. Outside of the classroom, faculty members are actively involved with the work of students. At Florida State, collaboration outside of the classroom is as important as the classroom experience. Faculty members work with students on law review articles, moot court and mock trial competitions, business plans, or directed independent studies. Clinical professors work closely with students in a rich array of externship programs and "live-client" clinics. The wide variety of internship and externship experiences available to Florida State students supplements the traditional classroom experience and often helps with job placement.
