Why should a prospective student choose FSU College of Law?
I could not find any other law school that had the combination of the community and the location that FSU College of Law has. The students truly care about each other in a deep way and everyone wants everyone to succeed. Being in the state capitol, the school is located just steps away from where big decisions are taking place and that is such a special advantage of the school.

What is your favorite thing about FSU Law?
The students and faculty here want to build you up to be both a great lawyer and great person. The best thing about this school is the unity that is felt all throughout the school. Whether it is students helping students or professors helping students, there is a unity at FSU College of Law that makes it stand out.

What has been the best experience you have had at the College of Law thus far?
The Hispanic Law Students Association hosted a Rep Your Country event and it was so much fun to see everyone come out in sport jerseys showing off their country. We had great music, great food, and just an overall great time!
