    Re: Florida State University College of Law (Full ABA)

    Florida State University College of Law is the law school of Florida State University in Tallahassee. The law school's highly accomplished and accessible law faculty delivers a program that has an interdisciplinary orientation designed to produce well-rounded and effective lawyers.

    The law school borders the southeast quadrant of the University's campus, near the Donald L. Tucker Center, an arena and part of the Tallahassee civic center area, and is immediately across the street from the Florida First District Court of Appeal courthouse (as of Spring 2007, the Florida Legislature has given the court building to the law school for renovation for school use). It is recognizable by the distinctive and historic white wood trellis structures outside the law school's eastern buildings.

    The D'Alemberte Rotunda, part of the College of Law, is used to host special events and in the past has been used by the Florida Supreme Court to convene special sessions.


    The College of Law offers the Juris Doctor (J.D.), which is the first professional law degree. The three-year program provides students a foundational first-year program, a legal writing program, and a varied offering of upper-level courses, seminars, clinics, and co-curricular activities.

    The College of Law offers an Master of Laws (LL.M.) program in Environmental Law and Policy, as well as an LL.M. program for foreign lawyers. Additionally, the College of Law offers certificate programs in Environmental and Land Use Law and International Law. Its faculty also offers a significant range of courses in Law, Business, and Economics.

    The College of Law offers joint degree programs allowing students to earn other degrees in conjunction with the J.D., including Master of Arts, Master of Science, Master of Business Administration, and Ph.D. degrees.


    Leiter’s Law School Rankings (2010) rates the law school's faculty as the nation’s 23rd best in terms of per capita scholarly impact. The National Jurist magazine (2009) ranks Florida State the nation’s 10th “Best Value” law school, based on employment rate, bar passage and tuition. Hispanic Business magazine (2009) ranks Florida State University College of Law as the nation’s 3rd best law school for Hispanic students.

    The College of Law is ranked 54th among law schools in the 2011 U.S. News & World Report law school ranking. U.S. News ranked the environmental law program as the fifth best in law schools and the highest-ranked in the Southeast. The National Jurist magazine (2010) ranks our law library the 30th best in the nation.

      Academic & International Programs

      With a law faculty involved around the world, Florida State Law offers students a dynamic program in International Law. Add to this the law school's location in the capital of a state that has become a hub of international trade, and Florida State provides law students opportunities few other law schools can match.

      International intellectual property, human rights law and international trade are among the areas of our faculty's expertise. Faculty members have helped shape legal issues in South Africa, the Czech Republic, Argentina, Vietnam, Uganda, China and Great Britain. They have engaged in coastal management research in Central America for the United Nations, in making medicine available to AIDS victims in South Africa, in the struggle for human rights in South America and in developing a dispute resolution process among Caribbean nations.

      For more information on the study of International Law at the Florida State Law, contact Professor Donna Christie, Dean of International Programs, at 850.644.4249 or [email protected].

          I do love to study more about laws, as what I've seen having a lot of knowledge about it will prevent me from committing any violation that will danger my life.

            It has been found in the Law School Transparency reports that nine months after the FSU Law class of 2011 graduated, about 77% of the newly minted J.D.s had long-term full-time jobs requiring bar passage whereas 2.9% of graduates got federal judicial clerkships; 6.1% work in large firms (more than 100 attorneys) in some full-time, long-term capacity; and 24.4% work in full-time, long-term public interest or government jobs. The location of the college itself provides many opportunities to gain legal experience.

              Students here are a satisfied bunch, for reasons that start with the affordable in-state tuition, and carry right over to their classmates and faculty. Nearly everyone speaks of the resounding friendliness of the student body; “Everyone is very close, and “competitiveness is healthy and never cutthroat.
