From the School

Florida Coastal is an American Bar Association accredited institution whose culturally diverse students graduate “practice-ready” through hard work, award-winning, ongoing practical training that is taught by supportive and experienced faculty.

Founded in 1996, Jacksonville based Florida Coastal serves a student body that is nearly 50% minority (compared to just 13% diversity in the U.S. legal profession), and because of this the institution is a recipient of The INSIGHT Into Diversity Higher Education Excellence in Diversity Award (HEED). At Florida Coastal, students receive ongoing practical training from day one and together have been recognized by the National Jurist magazine’s Practical Training Honor Roll. Unlike the 65% national law school average, 100% of Florida Coastal’s students participate in pro bono legal work prior to graduation and together have dedicated more than 40,000 man-hours.
