Kelsey Copeland (’17) clerked at International Speedway
Corporation as a student through the FSU Law corporate
externship program. She then worked in house at NASCAR
and is now senior corporate counsel at the LPGA.

FSU Law has relationships with the in-house law departments of large, primarily publicly traded companies that have agreed to host a student as a summer extern. Every company provides a distinct learning experience. These externships are great learning opportunities for students who wish to gain exposure to the realities of corporate practice and learn to critically evaluate the norms and institutional arrangements. Many of the supervising attorneys are FSU Law alumni and view teaching as a way to give back to the college. 

The College of Law currently places students in externships at locations including First American Title (Atlanta), White Cap (Atlanta), NASCAR (Daytona Beach), NextEra Energy/Florida Power & Light Company (Tallahassee & Juno Beach), JM Family Enterprises/Southeast Toyota (Deerfield Beach), and SBA Communications (Boca Raton). 

Students, please visit the FSU College of Law Externships site on Canvas for the most current externships information and to apply.
