Founded in 1996, Florida Coastal School of Law (Coastal Law) is an ABA-accredited institution whose culturally diverse students graduate practice-ready through hard work and award-winning, ongoing practical training that is taught by supportive and experienced full-time faculty.
Coastal Law has been recognized by The National Jurist magazine in its honor roll of best law schools for practical training. Unlike the 65% national law-school average, 100% of our students participate in pro bono legal work prior to graduation – which combined with our other experiential learning opportunities results in over 100,000 hours per year in practical training.
Coastal Law’s competitive teams are consistent winners and have received individual honors at statewide, regional, and national competitions. We were National Moot Court Champions and have been ranked #1 in the nation for two of the last three years – adding to a decade of success as winners in 25 national competitions. Our Moot Court Honor Board is consistently ranked in the top 10 among all ABA accredited Law Schools.
Coastal Law serves a student body that is nearly 50% diverse compared to just 13% diversity in the U.S. legal profession. Because of this, our institution is a recipient of the INSIGHT Into Diversity Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) Award.
Thanks in part to our highly skilled faculty, Coastal Law has also been named by The National Jurist as one of the top innovative law schools in the country.
Coastal Law operates on rolling admissions, and enrollment in our Full-Time JD Program is available in the fall, spring and summer. Regardless of when you start, you will receive the same quality education and curriculum.
We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to Jacksonville.
