 Dean's Welcome

Dean Leroy PernellCongratulations and welcome to the Florida A&M University College of Law. Florida A&M University College of Law has a proud tradition of educating and training lawyers who become influential leaders and defenders of justice across the country and globally. Our commitment to diversity and public service are renowned. Since 2007, we consistently have been ranked in the top five for diversity by U.S. News & World Report magazine. In three of those years, we were ranked number one.

We are excited you chose to join our law school community, and we are planning an exciting and informative Orientation Week. All entering students are required to attend Orientation. You should consider Orientation as the beginning of your career in the legal profession. As you begin this journey, prepare yourselves for the rigors of law school by completing the required readings, getting your financial, family and employment affairs in order, and solidifying your travel plans and living arrangements so that you are settled in the Orlando area by Friday, August 1.   

Fall 2014 New Student Orientation will take place Monday, August 4, 2014 through Thursday, August 7, 2014. I look forward to seeing each of you here, and working with you to achieve your goal of becoming a member of the practicing bar.
