Courts, Law, & Schools

This page will be set up to cover the courts whose opinions have an impact on the law of Florida and Alachua County. There will be links to all courts within each of the two major sections, Federal and State Courts. Once the basic structure of the Courts portion of the page is completed, I will begin work on the Law School and their on-line publications portions. Hope you find this helpful.
