In 2003, FSU Law launched the LL.M. in American Law for Foreign Lawyers degree program. This program gives students with a law degree from other nations an understanding of the American legal system and the role of law in the United States. Students can create their own plan of study and design a curriculum to gain in-depth knowledge of U.S. law in specialized fields such as commercial/business law, international law, intellectual property law and criminal law. Also in 2003, the Honorable Kenneth B. Bell (’82) became the first College of Law graduate appointed to the Florida Supreme Court. Justice Bell served until 2008 and is now a shareholder of Gunster in Tallahassee. A grant from the Law School Admission Council enabled the Donald J. Weidner Summer for Undergraduates Program the ability to expand from 30 to 60 students. In the same year, an additional $1 million gift from the Wayne and Pat Hogan Family Foundation enabled the program to remain at its expanded size on a permanent basis. Talbot “Sandy” D’Alemberte stepped down as President of FSU in 2003, after serving in the role since 1994, and returned to the law school. Immediately he immersed himself in the Online Legal Studies Project, a three-year project funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development to help educate lawyers and law students in Central and Eastern Europe.
