Curriculum & Programs of Emphasis


Florida State University College of Law's three-year Juris Doctor curriculum begins with traditional courses and expands to include the latest in theoretical and interdisiplinary analyses. The first-year curriculum provides the foundation in history, doctrine, and analysis that students need to fully appreciate more specialized elevtive courses offered later in law school.


In the second and third years of law school, the program is almost entirely elective. It includes a wide range of courses and approaches. Florida State also offers many opportunities for experiential learning and other courses designed to enable students to be sophisticated entrants into the worls of business, government and law practice.


We have especially strong programs in business law, environmental law, and international law. In each of these areas, Florida State offers courses and experiences that go far beyond the basics. In addition, the law school offers certificate programs in all three specialties and an LL.M. program in environmental law. Florida State also offers an LL.M. in American Law for lawyers from around the world. Additionally, Florida State has one of the best criminal law programs in the region.
