We are delighted to announce that FSU Law has been named one of the nation’s top seven law schools for human rights law by preLaw magazine! preLaw’s article about the ranking highlights our Collateral Consequences Project, which is a project within Clinical Professor Carla Laroche’s Gender and Family Justice Clinic focusing on issues that may hamper people’s ability to reenter society because of their criminal histories. The project is one of our many clinical offerings for students interested in human rights law. Students can also participate in a variety of externships, our Human Trafficking and Exploitation Law Project, led by Public Interest Law Center Director Paolo Annino (’83), and our recently launched COVID-19 Veterans Legal Clinic or Immigration and Farmworker Project, both led by Clinical Professor Darby Kerrigan Scott (’07), to name a few. FSU Law also offers traditional classroom courses in human rights law, some of the newest being Human Rights & National Security, Special Topics in Human Rights: All Human Rights are Local, Regional Human Rights Systems, and Gender Justice. In the spring, we will offer a new civil rights course and a new course taught by nationally prominent alumni attorneys that will cover social and legal movements on social justice. We are proud of our offerings in this area and the efforts of our faculty, and that the efforts of our faculty are being recognized at the national level!
