    Affordability

    Tuition for in-state and out-of-state students at FAMU College of Law remains among the lowest in the state of Florida. Our tuition rates – which have remained steady at $14,131.66 for at least three years – offer a remarkable value, even on a national scale. Our comprehensive financial aid program includes institutional grants and federal loan programs to help eligible students meet the expenses associated with a legal education. All admitted students are considered automatically for any institutional scholarships and need only submit a separate scholarship application when specifically requested.

    The FAMU College of Law has been consistently recognized for its diversity efforts by U.S. News & World Report, National Jurist and On Being A Black Lawyer. Drawing strength from our multicultural community, the law school embraces its population of students, faculty and staff who vary in age, gender, race, ethnicity, geographic background and collegiate experience.

    Flexibility

    Applicants to the law school have the option of applying to the full-time day program, the part-time evening program, or both programs at the time of application. Complementing our standard curriculum, we offer academic liberties that permit our students to expand their scope of knowledge by exploring the law in other countries and at other law schools.

    Visibility

    Our proximity to the major law firms, area courthouses and governmental offices provides our law students ample chances to showcase their skills and network with members of the local bar. Those opportunities range from formal settings such as oral arguments, which are judged by alumni and other area attorneys who visit campus on a regular basis, to more casual and chance encounters with prominent attorneys who frequent downtown to conduct legal business or to grab a bite to eat.
