Florida Coastal School of Law has consciously structured and defined itself on the basis of some significant differentiation from traditional law schools.
Florida Coastal sets itself apart on the basis of its culture, a student outcome-centered orientation, a commitment to professional preparation, educational experience, service to under-served communities, and accountability of the faculty for market-leading student outcomes.
These distinguishing characteristics aim toward establishing Florida Coastal as the benchmark of inclusive excellence in professional education for the 21st Century. In furtherance of this mission, it is committed to achieving the following objectives:
- Provide a program of legal education designed to qualify graduates for admission to the Bar and enable them to participate effectively in the legal profession.
- Offer an educational experience that prepares students to deal with both current and anticipated legal problems, responds to globalization, emphasizes skills training and professionalism, and facilitates appreciation for cultural diversity.
- Attract a diverse student body, faculty, and staff motivated by the law school community’s values and ideals.
- Create an institutional climate that fosters respect, trust, collaboration, and meaningful interaction among students, faculty, and staff.
- Provide the physical facilities, law library, and technological capacities to support the educational program, other institutional needs, and community and public service.
