FAMU College of Law Gives Back to Community

New students at the FAMU College of Law are giving back to the community already.  More than 60 FAMU College of Law students participated in community service projects in conjunction with new student orientation on Saturday, August 4.

Incoming law students sported matching FAMU Law t-shirts and volunteered to sort soap and toiletries at Clean the World; prepared and served lunch for residents of the Coalition for the Homeless; and sorted food, clothing and other essentials at United Against Poverty.

“"My group worked at United Against Poverty stacking the food pantry shelves so clients can get a better view of the food products available to feed their families,”" said Jennifer Pinto from Miami.  “"It’'s always good to give back to the community and it is especially meaningful doing it with my FAMU College of Law family.”"

Foundations for Law School Success (“Foundations”) is a “boot camp” style program designed to help new students build a strong foundation before the start of their rigorous law school journey.   
The program takes place August 1, 2018 through August 13, 2018.  During Foundations, students will be provided an administrative and student services overview, as well as participate in a professionalism program and a community service project.
