ABA Approved Since 1975


Founded in 1974, the Law Center grants JD, JD/MBA, JD/MS (Dispute Resolution), JD/MURP, JD/MS (Computer Science) and JD/MS (Psychology) degrees. It is accredited by the ABA and is a member of the AALS. Our parent university, founded in 1964, is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.


Shepard Broad Law Center has approximately 950 students in its full-time day and part-time evening programs. Over 2,800 individuals applied for the 370 seats in the 2007 entering class. Reflecting its appeal to the mature student, for whom law is a second career, students range in age from the early 20’s to the 50’s. Approximately 25% are members of minority groups. Our students come from all over the United States as well as from several foreign countries.


The Law Center is located on the main university campus in Davie, a western suburb of Fort Lauderdale. The spacious atrium in our facility joins two multi-story wings, a library wing and an office/classroom wing. The Law Center building overlooks a lake and is within walking distance of cafeteria, bookstore, and apartment/dormitory facilities. Its courtrooms and classooms are equipped to utilize technological innovations as well as traditional teaching methods.


Our classroom/office wing reflects one of our most important traditions, attention to the student as an individual. Small classrooms allow us to offer all first year classes in sections of 60 or fewer students. Upperclass sections rarely exceed 75 students, and numerous workshop and seminar electives are available to groups of 20 or fewer students. Faculty offices are clustered across from the library entrance, facilitating student-faculty interaction. Law Center faculty members are known for their open door office policy and their commitment to our students.


Our Law Library is one of the few in the United States serving as a depository for state, federal, and United Nations documents. Its resources include over 365,000 volume equivalents, including specialized collections for taxation, international law, criminal law, admiralty, children’s rights, jurisprudence, law and popular culture, and trial practice. Its Learning Technology Center includes an extensive collection of media material, computer data bases, and microform and CD-ROM technology. All entering students bring laptop computers and use our wireless technology to access the NSU Law Net.


No one method of instruction predominates; our 59 full-time faculty members engage students in traditional Socratic dialogue, guide them through problem and simulation exercises, and supervise them in live-client clinical placements. Prominent local practitioners and judges serve as adjunct faculty and enrich our curriculum in their areas of expertise.


Our innovative four semester Lawyering Skills and Values curriculum introduces students to legal research and writing, client interviewing, negotiating, and pretrial practice. Students select between general practice, litigation, and transactional tracks in their second year.


Our skills curriculum includes numerous workshops, pre-trial and trial advocacy courses, and clinical offerings. Seminars consider topics ranging from AIDS to Corporate Governance; workshops include Bankruptcy, Business Planning, and Probate. In addition to offerings traditionally thought of as 9 bar 9 courses, students are exposed to courses as diverse as Admiralty, Construction Law, and Immigration Law. Our international offerings include a dual degree program in Barcelona, Spain.


Because externships offer students hands-on experience in many facets of lawyering, every student can enroll in a full semester clinical placement. Placements include Criminal, ADR, Family, Business, Personal Injury Litigation, International, and Environmental. Students may also participate in our judicial internship program or our consumer protection internship. Our individuals with disabilities project provides valuable academic experiences, and our street law program introduces middle and high school students to the legal system.


The student-run Nova Law Review is published three times per year. Its highly-acclaimed symposium issues have covered an array of topics, such as drug testing; reproductive rights; and popular culture. Other students participate in the Journal of International &Comparative Law, which annually publishes a bilingual issue or the International Citator. Active moot court and ATLA groups allow students to participate in intramural and interscholastic moot court, counseling, negotiating, and trial competitions.


Several research and advocacy institutes are affiliated with the Law Center. These include Public Interest Law Center, the Center for the Study of Youth Policy, Everglades Law Center, Inter-American Center for Human Rights, and the Disability Law Institute. These institutes offer opportunities for students and faculty to make important contributions to the administration of justice.


Law Center alumni are represented in major law firms in Florida as well as in other states. Several serve as judges, legislators, and city officials. An active mentoring program pairs attorneys with law students interested in particular areas of practice.
