What is the Excellence in Florida Legal Research Program?


The Excellence in Florida Legal Research Program is an extracurricular, non-credit program of study offered by Florida State Law Research Center. Sources and strategies for researching Florida-specific topics are the focus of study. To satisfactorily complete the program, law students attend ten legal research workshops and complete related assignments.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the success of the advanced legal research courses, the Excellence Program is being phased out.  Students are finding that the semester-long emersion in advanced or specialized legal research classes are more suitable for developing the kinds of sophisticated research skills they will need when they enter the work force. Although the Program is ending, the individual workshops will continue to be offered each week during the semester.
