Our students' success in the legal job market is truly remarkable.According to preLaw magazine (2020), Florida State is the nation’s #1 law school for government careers, #7 in the nation for public defender/prosecutor jobs and among the nation’s top 7 law schools for public policy. National media outlets, including U.S. News & World Report, The Wall Street Journal and Moody’s have ranked Florida State among the nation's best law schools in terms of job placement.
These external rankings are a result of our community wide commitment to help students launch their careers. From incoming orientation through graduation and beyond, we strategize your job search process with you because preparing our graduates to succeed in their careers is the most important thing we do. Everyone at the law school works toward these efforts – including our outstanding faculty, the fabulous professionals in our Career Services Office and members of our engaged alumni network, which include 900 alumni who have specifically volunteered to serve as Career Mentors.
