Fall 2012 Recruiting Recap and Spring 2013 Schedule

Over the past five months representatives from the College of Law have had the privilege to go on the road and meet with many prospective fall 2013 law students! We have been all over the US in search of those who would be a good fit for the Florida State community. From New York to LA and Miami to Wisconsin, we met with over 1,200 of you. We have received applications from many of you and look forward to receiving applications from the rest. We apologize if we were unable to meet with you this fall, but hope that we can do so in the spring or we would love to have you visit Tallahassee and the College of Law.

From January to April we will be traveling regionally giving presentations and meeting with individual prospective students. Specifically, we will be visiting schools throughout Alabama, Georgia and Florida. Be on the lookout for specific dates and locations at http://www.law.fsu.edu/prospective_students/index.html under the Recruiting Calendar link.

Celebrating Rivalry Week

Each year the College of Law hosts a “Rivalry Week” leading up to the much anticipated Florida vs. Florida State football game.  For those who are Florida natives or did their undergrad at a state institution, the UF/FSU rivalry is one you know all too well, but for those who are just arriving in the sunshine state it is a concept that bewilders many.  In honor of this year’s rivalry week here is a brief history:

The rivalry originated in 1958 between the only two state of Florida institutions at that time – University of Florida and Florida State University.  Since then the two teams have meet on the football field a total of 56 times with the University of Florida leading the series, 33-21-2.  Currently Florida State University holds a two game winning streak.

Rivalry week is a big deal each year here at the College of Law.  Below you can enjoy some photos of this year’s festivities.  No matter if you are a FSU fan, a UF fan, or an LSU fan – rivalry week is a great time for all of the students and staff!



Happy Halloween

Just because you are in law school does not mean you can’t have fun for Halloween…
