Alumnus Justice Alan Lawson welcomed new students to the profession during orientation.

During the past two weeks, we welcomed new students for orientations in preparation for the new academic year, which begins next week. On August 11, we welcomed 17 new LL.M. students to campus for a special LL.M. orientation. This impressive group includes foreign-trained attorneys and J.D. holders from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, China, India, Jamaica, Mexico, the Philippines, Nigeria, Portugal, South Africa, Turkey, the United States, Uzbekistan, and Venezuela. On Monday, we began our one-week orientation with the incoming 1L class. The schedule included a welcome session with Florida Supreme Court Justice Alan Lawson ('87); a Contracts mini-course taught by six faculty members; sessions with legal writing professors, 1L professors, the Research Center, and the Academic Programs Office; a panel featuring current law students; sessions covering diversity, ethics, and civility; and tours of the law school. Today and tomorrow, students are participating in community service projects around Tallahassee as part of the orientation schedule. Today, we are also hosting special orientation programming for transfer students. We are excited to watch our new students flourish during their time at FSU Law!
