Welcome Prospective Students!

On behalf of the Center for Professional Development, we want to thank you for considering Florida Coastal School of Law. We understand how challenging it can be to determine which law school is right for you. As you make this all-important decision, we urge you to consider the quality of each law school’s Center for Professional Development.

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.
