ABA Approved Since 1930

 


Founded in 1900, Stetson University College of Law is Florida's first law school. Stetson boasts a long history of educating and training lawyers, judges, scholars, and business and civic leaders. This strong tradition is enhanced by the College of Law's devotion to developing the lawyering skills necessary to become an effective member of the legal profession. The College of Law operates an LL.M. program in International Law and an LL.M. program in Elder Law (which is offered via distance education), and study programs in The Cayman Islands; Granada, Spain; Buenos Aires, Argentina; The Hague, Netherlands; Freiburg, Germany; and Tianjin, China. Stetson students may also attend a Stetson‑administered semester‑abroad program in London, England. A part‑time, evening J.D. program started in August 2002. Students may earn the following dual degrees: J.D./M.B.A., J.D./M.P.H., and J.D./M.D.

 

Located on its own twenty‑one acre campus, Stetson's main campus is patterned after a medieval Spanish Village. Its buildings are of Spanish architecture, clustered around a plaza of fountains and palm trees. The main campus is centrally located in the City of Gulfport, a residential beachfront community adjacent to St. Petersburg, in the dynamic Tampa Bay Area, one of the nation's largest metropolitan areas. A satellite campus in downtown Tampa opened in 2004.

 

The faculty at Stetson continues to grow in strength and number. Because of its strong academic reputation, Stetson is able to attract distinguished scholars to its faculty. Many members of the faculty hold advanced law degrees or Master's or Ph.D. degrees in other disciplines. The majority of the faculty have engaged in the full‑time practice of law. Adding to the strength of the full‑time faculty is an outstanding adjunct faculty, comprised of prominent practicing attorneys and judges, who teach specialized elective courses, conduct seminars, and deliver lectures.

 

A Legal Information Center was dedicated in 1998, housing a cutting‑edge law library containing more than 419,000 volumes. The Law Library's resources are enriched by subscriptions to LexisNexis, Westlaw, and other electronic information systems. Study carrels are wired for access to the Internet and advanced legal research systems, as are most classroom seats.

 

The College of Law serves the legal profession and the community as a center for continuing legal education (CLE). Stetson offers a variety of programs ranging from half‑day seminars to multi‑day conferences in the U.S. and abroad. The CLE Office attracts prominent practitioners and jurists to attend and participate in these programs. Through the CLE programs, the College of Law extends its educational mission beyond students pursuing legal degrees.

 

Stetson has Centers for Excellence in Advocacy, Elder Law, International Law, and Higher Education Law and Policy, and a Consortium on Health Law and Policy collaborates with the University of South Florida. Stetson is also the headquarters for the National Clearinghouse for Science, Technology and the Law. The centers and consortium provide forums to examine law and public policy issues, and promote harmonious relationships among diverse constituencies through training programs, publications, and information exchanges.

 

Stetson attracts a national student body. In the 2007 entering classes, more than 122 different undergraduate colleges and universities and 30 states/territories are represented. Last year more than 2,700 applicants vied for about 345 seats in the entering class. Approximately 53% of the 2007 entering students are women and about 22% are members of minority groups.

 

One of Stetson University College of Law's greatest assets is the practical experience offered to students through advocacy competitions and clinical programs. Over the years, Stetson has built an impressive tradition of winning. Stetson is the only law school in the nation ever to win all five national level trial competitions in one academic year. Stetson is consistently ranked as one of the top law schools in the nation in advocacy training and also has a nationally recognized program in legal writing.

 

The Stetson Lawyers Association ensures that our more than 8,000 alumni are kept informed about the College of Law through publications, regional gatherings, and an online portal. Alumni are encouraged to participate in a wide variety of activities. Stetson fosters close relationships among students and faculty, as well as among the students themselves.
