With Holland & Knight LLP as its founding sponsor in 2008, Coastal Law launched an innovative program designed to impart the principles of ethics and professionalism from the perspective of practicing attorneys and judges. The Coastal Law Shadow Program provides students with opportunities to observe state and federal judges, private practice attorneys, public interest lawyers, and governmental law departments at trial and pretrial proceedings, mediations, settlements and other practice related activities. Consistent with Coastal Law’s encouragement of its students to gain practical experience and ethical awareness, the program bridges classroom instruction with exposure to daily practice activities and the tenets of professionalism.
