Welcome to a new semester

I want to once again welcome everyone back for a great semester. For the 1Ls, Burnt Toast & Coffee is the message that I send out at the beginning of each week concerning upcoming events and important announcements concerning things that have happened since the previous message.

On Tuesday, August 23rd from 12 noon to 1:15 p.m., the Career Services Department will conduct a panel discussion featuring transactional lawyers and litigators in Room 550. Lunch will be provided. Please join us to find out such things as:

  • The personality traits most commonly shared by transactional lawyers and by litigators.
  • The skills required to be successful in each specialty.
  • What employers look for when hiring a new lawyer for litigation versus transactional law.
  • The types of matters litigators and transactional lawyers handle in their practices.
  • Whether you can build a practice that includes litigation and transactional work. Please R.S.V.P. on Symplicity https://law-fcsl-csm.symplicity.com/students/ or to careerservices@fcsl.edu

Academic Success presents, “Bar Prep Thursdays”. The first session will be held on Thursday, August 25 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Atrium. You will have an opportunity to ask questions regarding the Bar Application, Bar Coaching and the Bar Exam.

I would like to congratulate the new candidates of the Florida Coastal Law Review. Please join me in congratulating them for their hard work and accomplishments.
