FAMU Law graduates enter the legal profession ready to work at law firms, government agencies, corporations, non-profit organizations, sports organizations, and other employment opportunities. These Rattlers for Justice are dedicated to helping those in dire need of credible legal services. They are following in the footsteps of the more than 2600 recent graduates of the reestablished FAMU College of Law.
The 18th FAMU Law Hooding Ceremony was held on Saturday, May 13th, at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress, One Grand Cypress Blvd., Orlando, FL 32836. The ceremony recognized graduates of fall 2022, spring 2023 and summer 2023.

The four-story building includes 160,000 gross square feet, has 20 classrooms and 50 faculty offices, and an elaborate Moot Court Room used for mock trials, competitions and special events. The Law Library occupies half of the space and features over 300,000 volumes, one of the largest civil rights collections in the Southeast, and volumes from the original College of Law that were given to Florida State University in the late 1960’s. The FAMU College of Law received full accreditation from the American Bar Association in July 2009 and was re-accredited in 2014.
