“FIU College of Law’s emphasis on international law is the reason why I wanted to develop a practice in international arbitration and am currently doing so with one of the world’s premier international law firms.”
Presidential Management Fellow Asylum Officer at USCIS Refugee, Asylum, and International Operations
“The FIU College of Law equipped me with the experience, skills, and faculty support that I needed to launch my career. I will always remember the caring professors who worked tirelessly to make us better advocates and the wonderful friends that I met at FIU.”
Vice President, Aviation, Skanska USA Building
“My College of Law experience can be summed up in two words: ‘access’ and ‘opportunity’. But for FIU College of Law, I would not have had ‘access’ to a truly world-class legal education while working to support my family, nor would I have had the ‘opportunity’ to realize my dream of becoming an attorney. I am profoundly grateful to our College of Law because it was the key that unlocked the door to the legal profession for me, and if not for the vision of its founders, it is a door that likely would have remained barred to me to this day.”
Presidential Management Fellowship Policy Analyst at U.S. Food & Drug Administration
“From new beginnings in camaraderie and professional development to opportunity and accolade, the spirit felt within FIU Law is one of great excitement and ambition that is utterly contagious among the faculty, staff, administration, and student body. This spirit lives on beyond graduation, as students realize that a degree from FIU Law is the beginning of endless opportunities.”

“It was a family decision for me to attend FIU and we have all benefitted from the wonderful inspiration of the FIU founders. When I look back, I can’t believe the motivation of the faculty and the students at 7:00 PM, after a long day of work and commute to school. That energy and drive for success continued into bar preparation and to this day.”
J. Alistair McKenzie
Attorney at McKenzie, Hall & De La Piedra, P.A.
“My representation of Occupy Pensacola, and their First Amendment rights in federal court would not be possible, were it not for my FIU Law professors, who gave me the tools needed to accomplish this task. I owe them my deepest gratitude for their intellect, insight, and passion for the law and for instilling this in me and their students. It’s a great honor to have been their student and I feel equally blessed that I have the opportunity to argue a First Amendment case.”
