ORLANDO, Fla – There’s a new distinction for Florida A&M University (FAMU) College of Law. The Knowledge Review is recognizing FAMU Law among its list of “America’s 10 Most Valuable Law Schools”.
This special recognition is an honor. During Black History Month, it is most appropriate to reflect on FAMU Law’s rich and meaningful history here in Florida. It is a story of great excitement to be established in 1949 with the first law class entering in 1951, heartfelt devastation to be closed and sweet triumph to be reestablished years later and located in Orlando. FAMU Law is unique in being the only HBCU law school to be closed and reopened.
FAMU Law sits in downtown Orlando where it continues its legacy to serve as a beacon of hope and catalyst for change by providing access to an excellent education to generations of students seeking to serve the needs of traditionally underserved people and communities locally, nationally and internationally.
