Why should a prospective student choose FSU College of Law?
Florida State University is the absolute best place to study law. We have such a collegial and inspiring family. The support of our deans, professors, and staff empowers and equips each student who enters our doors to succeed. Our colleagues are focused and brilliant, but more than that, they are kind, courteous, and willing to help wherever they can. In addition, there are so many programs hosted weekly that are catered to the holistic development of the students.

What is your favorite thing about FSU Law?
My absolute favorite thing about FSU Law is the support that we receive from our professors and staff. Our professors genuinely care about the success of the students. If there is clarification needed on anything, they willingly make themselves available.

What has been the best experience you have had at the College of Law thus far?
There have been so many incredible moments at the College of Law, but my favorite has been Alternative Spring Break. I had the opportunity to travel to Apopka, Florida with classmates and experience the challenges of farmworkers. We had the opportunity to tour farm sites that had been impacted by harsh chemicals and work in a nursery alongside farmworkers. I left with a renewed appreciation for farmworkers and an understanding of the importance of immigrant workers and the harsh effects that pesticides have on the workers.
