Thanks to a generous gift from FSU Law alumnus Jeff Stoops ('84) and Aggie Stoops, we have launched the Stoops Center of Law & Business (Colab) and its online digital platform, With the launch of the Stoops Colab, FSU Law is positioned to be one of the preeminent business law schools in the country. The first of its kind, the Stoops Colab will provide collaborative executive education opportunities with courses taught by FSU College of Law alumni, a robust online community that will address pressing legal challenges, and a variety of online webinars, symposia, and other events. The first course offerings will be available to learners from around the country in October, and learners will have the opportunity to work toward certifications in Privacy Law & Policy and in Employment & Human Resources Law. Additional certifications in the law and business of private equity, insurance, healthcare, financial markets, and sports law are also in development and will be available in 2023. The online community offers alumni opportunities to mentor current J.D. students, post job opportunities, enroll in professional learning opportunities, and network with other attorneys and business executives. As part of the Colab, we also launched the Takin’ Care of Business podcast in the spring. The podcast features FSU Law alumni and current students and gives students a glimpse at a variety of careers in business law.
I encourage all alumni to visit and become part of this collaborative online space for lawyers, business executives, and students. Many thanks to the alumni who have already joined the Stoops Center of Law & Business to serve as instructors, mentor our students, and share their experiences on our podcast.
