Community Need, Local Solution
The College of Law was established to provide quality legal education, focused on experiential learning and community partnerships, especially in the service of northeast Florida, and beyond.
Located in the VyStar Tower, our students are positioned amid a vibrant downtown. The College of Law is a 10-minute walk from the Duval County Courthouse, where our students can observe courtroom proceedings and make use of the courthouse's extensive legal library.
Our community extends beyond the Jacksonville city limits; it is wherever our students and graduates reside. The Jacksonville University College of Law aims to educate future lawyers, lawmakers, and leaders by providing the knowledge, skills, and resources they need to succeed and make a difference in their communities. To make this more accessible, all of our J.D. students are eligible for competitive scholarship levels. Currently, 100% of our admitted students have received a merit scholarship.

Consistent with accreditation protocol dictated by the American Bar Association (ABA), the Jacksonville University College of Law will begin the accreditation process in the spring of 2023. Our goal and highest priority is to achieve provisional accreditation by the time our first class of students graduates. The College of Law is not currently approved by the Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar of the ABA and makes no representation to any applicant that it will receive approval from the Council before the graduation of any matriculating student.
In the last decade, Jacksonville University has received full accreditation for over 30 programs ranging from healthcare to business administration, and is fully accredited through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).
