Business and Tax Law Student Perspectives




"For those with a passion for business and finance, the J.D./M.B.A. program is the best way to tie those areas together with the law. The business faculty at both the law and business schools are outstanding and a student doing the program with a focus will leave with a highly marketable degree."

Taylor Jordan ('14) is purusing the J.D./M.B.A. joint degree and is president of Florida State's Business Law Society. He has written for Bloomberg News and CNBC.




"The tailored curriculum structured in the Business Law Certificate provided me valuable and useful knowledge that allowed me to excel at my internship with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. Working with the SEC in their various investigations and litigations was not only an amazing experience for anyone interested in business law, but it was heartening to know that I had many of the tools necessary to aid the efforts of a federal agency with such an important mission."

Tanya Lambrechts ('14) interned at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in Miami during the summer of 2013.




"The business certificate has given me the necessary skills and experience to succeed in today's fast-paced, international business climate. The best part about Florida State's business program is the practical skills courses - they provide students with valuable, real-life experience."

Nicolas Tevez ('14) completed a business and legal affairs clinical internship at Universal Music Latin America in Miami Beach during the summer of 2013.




"Working as a corporate legal extern for Office Depot, Inc. is a great experience for any law student interested in pursuing a career in corporate law or as in-house counsel. I received assignments in the following areas of the law: employment, commercial contracts, commercial and class-action litigation, I.P., privacy, securities, and real estate. My externship experience at Office Depot, Inc. was immeasurable!"

Jeffery Sampson ('14) externed at Office Depot, Inc. in Boca Raton during the summer of 2013.
