The Shadow Program offers students a unique opportunity to bridge classroom doctrinal instruction and courtroom practice skills. Any interested student has the opportunity to participate in this unique program sponsored by one of the nation’s premier law firms, Holland & Knight. Florida Coastal students who participate in the program will be given the opportunity to shadow attorneys from Holland & Knight and lawyers from other private firms, public interest law offices, and governmental law departments at trial, evidentiary hearings, motion hearings, and depositions - - as well as at non-litigation proceedings such as mediations, closings and settlements.
Students will be able to see the practical application of concepts they are learning about in the classroom. They will also have the unique opportunity to learn how trials are conducted, how arguments are made, how evidence is presented and objected to, how lawyers talk to judges, how lawyers talk to clients, how lawyers talk to one another, and how to conduct themselves in a courtroom.
