TRAINING FROM DAY ONE
EARNING OUR PROGRAM
From orientation to graduation, pro bono work is a priority for
our students. Florida Coastal is one of a small group of law
schools nationwide that requires 100% of its J.D. students to
do pro bono legal work during law school.
Whether serving Jacksonville's indigent community in
our live-client legal clinics or gaining experience through
internship, externships, moot court, or clerking positions,
Florida Coastal Law students receive a wealth of practical
legal experience while making a meaningful contribution
for people seeking access to justice.
Florida Coastal students are National Moot Court
Champions and rank #3 in the past decade
Florida Coastal offers 13 clinics, which took on 473 active clinic cases in Fall 2016, an impressive number for
a small school.
Florida Coastal judicial externships placed students
in The Florida Supreme Court, The Florida First District
Court of Appeal, The Federal District Court.
Florida Coastal was recognized
in 2016 by the National Jurist
magazine's Practical Training
Honor Roll for the third year in a row.
Florida Coastal legal internships have placed students
in the Florida Department of Children and Families,
State Attorney's Office 4th Judicial Circuit, and Office
