Florida Coastal School of Law welcomes inquiries from reporters, writers, editors and media outlets. The school has an open media policy, meaning we allow and encourage our professors to speak on law topics and legal trends when appropriate and within their scope of expertise.
Faculty members directly contacted by the media about matters related to the law, legal trends, or other matters not related to schoolitself, are authorized to respond by phone or in person if they choose, without communications department approval.
However, interviews conducted on campus (taped or live TV interviews or print interviews) are to be coordinated and approved by the Marketing and Communications Department prior to being conducted. The Marketing and Communications Department will help you facilitate the interviews and work with the media outlet to make sure they have the correct information about the school and how to conduct themselves appropriately while on our campus. Unauthorized media may be escorted off campus per the discretion of campus security.
