Benjamin 'Ben' Odom is vice president, deputy general counsel at International Speedway Corporation. During summer semesters, he supervises FSU Law in-house corporate counsel externs. He is an FSU Law alumnus, earning his J.D. with honors in 2004.
The College of Law has close relationships with many large corporations located throughout Florida and the southeast region.
FSU Law has relationships with the in-house law departments of large, primarily publicly-traded companies that have agreed to host a student as a summer extern. Every company provides a distinct learning experience. These externships are great learning opportunities for students who wish to gain exposure to the realities of corporate practice and learn to critically evaluate the norms and institutional arrangements. Many of the supervising attorneys are FSU Law alumni and view teaching as a way to give back to the college.
The College of Law currently places students in externships at locations including First American Title (Atlanta), HD Supply (Atlanta and Orlando), International Speedway Corporation (Daytona Beach), NextEra Energy/Florida Power & Light Company (Tallahassee & Juno Beach), and SBA Communications (Boca Raton).
