Shepard Broad College of Law students are not just numbers; they are members of our community. Our students are a talented and diverse student body with wide-ranging perspectives. We know them as individuals with unique backgrounds, needs and goals. To that end, students are offered boundless opportunities and support needed for success both during and after law school. Each new entering class is selected with the intent that they will be well prepared to practice ethically and professionally in their chosen specialty and meet the needs of the legal community and public. Our extensive and practical curriculum provides options to a variety of legal careers. Students can work on law journals and reviews, join one of our many diverse student organizations, and participate in trial advocacy or moot court teams to enhance their education. Real-world skills are gained in clinical programs which offer students actual legal experience. For a global education beyond the classroom, students can attend a variety of international programs. To complement our diverse educational experience, the College of Law's location in the vibrant city of Fort Lauderdale is a major metropolitan and international commerce area. Opportunities abound for internships and externships at numerous courts, government agencies, public service and non-profit organizations. Additionally, connections to the bench, bar, and top law firms are some of the rewarding benefits afforded to students at the College of Law.
