ENVIRONMENTAL & LAND USE LAW
www.law.ufl.edul/elulp

Florida's sensitive, varied and beautiful natural environment
makes the University of Florida a natural choice for students
who want to focus on the national and global issues of land use
and environmental law. Florida provides a perfect setting to
study first-hand the efforts to reconcile growth and conservation.

The Environmental and Land Use Law Program educates future
lawyers through an innovative approach that combines the study
of land use law with environmental law. Many environmental
problems result from inappropriate uses of land. Air and water
pollution, toxic and hazardous waste, endangered species
protection and balancing public health and environmental values
against the protection of private property interests are challenges
that face every community.



FAMILY LAW
www.law.ufl.edu/programs/ccl

The increasing complexity of divorce law and children's law
and the rise of the nontraditional family make family law one of
the fastest growing and most intricate practice specialties. One
new demand was created by a Florida Supreme Court mandate
that established the "Unified Family Court" to handle all family,
juvenile and delinquency matters.

Administered by the Center on Children and Families, the
certificate program offers sequential clinical and classroom
experiences that build on one another for effective training in
areas such as child development, economics of family law,
negotiation and drafting and courtroom advocacy.





ESTATES & TRUSTS PRACTICE
www.law.ufl.edu/programs/etpcp

This area of the law is of considerable practical importance since
it involves counseling clients about how to effectively provide
for themselves and for the disposition of property during their
lifetimes or at death. The practice involves planning, drafting and
administering gratuitous transfers of property, thus implicating
the law of gifts, trusts, future interests, intestate succession, wills,
probate, fiduciary law and taxation. Additionally and perhaps more
importantly, the practice involves counseling clients on the many
and complex issues confronting the elderly.


INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LAW
www.law.ufl.edu/programs/ip/

Traditionally, intellectual property law encompasses several
different bodies of law, including patents, trade secrets, copyrights
and trademarks. The technology boom has expanded the need
for patent lawyers as well as those trained in related fields such
as antitrust, media, cyberlaw and general commercial law. The
demand also continues to grow for those who can adapt or create
doctrines in new fields such as genetic engineering, accessing
and downloading Internet materials, and disputes involving domain
names, metatags and hyperlinks as well as for those who can
apply these laws in more traditional industries and the creative arts.



INTERNATIONAL & COMPARATIVE LAW
www.law.ufl.edu/intemationalliclcp.shtml

Every field of law that involves commerce civil procedure,
business associations, securities regulation, intellectual property,
trade regulation, taxation, immigration and environmental law,
among others is affected by globalization. Equally important is
the development of human rights laws, domestically
and internationally. This certificate program helps prepare students
for practice in this new global legal environment by teaching
international aspects of every area of the law.
