In 2013, FSU Law reached a new high as #48 in the U.S. News & World Report rankings of best law schools. In February, the College of Law co-hosted a timely health care reform conference with the College of Medicine. The conference focused on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on the Affordable Health Care Act and brought together medical students and faculty with law students and faculty. In March 2013, FSU Law hosted its first national mock trial invitational competition. Teams from across the country competed in the five courtrooms of the new Advocacy Center. Also in March, the law school hosted a national conference for the 100 th anniversary of the federal income tax. Tax scholars came from across the nation to present papers and then the Florida State University Law Review published a symposium issue with eight major articles presented at the conference. 2013 was also the first year the law school conducted a Spring Break course. The course, Law and Risk Management, was taught be alum Fred Karlinsky (’92) and was designed to bring in many distinguished guest lecturers. This one-week course continues to be taught during spring break. Also in 2013, the College of Law’s Public Interest Law Center (PILC) received the American College of Trial Lawyers’ 2013 Emil Gumpert Award. The nationally competitive award recognizes programs “whose principal purpose is to maintain and improve the administration of justice.” The $50,000 grant-funded prize associated with the award supported the Miller Resentencing Project, an initiative of PILC’s Children in Prison Project.
