Greetings From The Dean

At Florida A&M University (FAMU) College of Law, we do not just produce lawyers. Our graduates are champions of civil rights and social justice and leaders in criminal justice reform. They transform their communities and empower citizens to change the world.


Located in the fourth fastest growing city in the U.S. and the fastest growing city in Florida, (according to Forbes), the FAMU College of Law campus in Orlando is surrounded by your future employers (government offices, major law firms, large corporations and legal services agencies) and just steps from the George C. Young United States Courthouse and Federal Building.

Our curriculum emphasizes theoretical coursework, practical experience, public service and professionalism. Our state-of-the-art facility boasts a four-story law library with more than 300,000 volumes. Our ceremonial moot courtroom hosts special events including oral arguments before Justices of the Appellate Court.

Whether you’re a traditional full-time day student or attending classes part-time in the evening, our program’s flexibility is designed to meet your academic and professional goals. On Being a Black Lawyer ranked the FAMU College of Law’s affordability as number one among the 10 Best Bargain Law Schools

We are proud of our HBCU heritage. We are also inclusive to all who seek a law school community where intellectual freedom and self-discovery are encouraged. Since re-establishing in 2002, more than 1,500 leaders in law have graduated from our program.

I invite you to learn more about the FAMU College of Law. Fueled by a passion for change, we are devoted to your education and career development. We are Rattlers for Justice!
