College of Law

The Florida State University College of Law is fully approved by the American Bar Association and is a member of the Association of American Law Schools. The College offers a three-year course of study leading to the Juris Doctor degree with certificate programs in business, international and environmental law. Furthermore, a Master of Laws degree (LL.M.) in American Law for Foreign Lawyers is available for foreign graduate students who have legal training, and an LL.M. in Environmental Law and Policy is available. The law school also offers a one-year Juris Master degree program for those who possess a bachelor’s degree and who want to advance their careers with a year of legal studies and training.
The College of Law has approximately 700 students. Its research center has nearly 256,084 total print volumes and volume equivalents, 229,000 serials, and more than 1,500 current subscriptions.
Educational opportunities are plentiful. The location of the College—only blocks from the Capitol, the Supreme Court of Florida, a number of federal and state courts, and various administrative agencies—makes extensive externship programs possible. Students publish the Florida State University Law Review, the Business Review, the Journal of Land Use & Environmental Law, and the Journal of Transnational Law & Policy. Moot Court and Mock Trial teams have won national honors. Each summer, the College conducts a nationally recognized program at Oxford University, England.
These resources support the goal Dean Mason Ladd identified when the College was founded in 1966: “Its one aim is excellence in the preparation and education of students so that they will acquire the knowledge, comprehension, and judgment essential to the performance of legal services in a complex and rapidly changing society.”
