Programs in

Transportation and Logistics Law


OVERVIEW Florida Coastal School of Law is proud to introduce the country’s first LL.M. in Transportation and Logistics Law for graduates of law school, and the first Certificate in Transportation and Logistics Regulation for non-lawyers.  Our programs will train personnel to handle legal problems in Transportation and Logistics, including accidents and liability, personal injury and property damage, pollution, government regulation, personnel matters, or labor relations. Our goal is to create “Solution Brokers,” professionals trained in the law who are able to work with management, labor, government, and carriers to solve problems before they become litigation. Non-lawyers with Certificates in Transportation and Logistics Regulation should be able to handle many legal problems “in-house” before they get out of control. When legal representation is necessary, lawyers with LL.M.s and nonlawyers with Certificates can work together efficiently and effectively to solve problems. We believe our program is the future of legal education. We train personnel to resolve disputes early and to provide lower cost legal services to the industry.

Practice-oriented Curriculum

All students must complete two required courses: Administrative Law for Transportation Professionals and International Business Transactions for Transportation Professionals.
