American Bar Association Law Student Division
Client Counseling, Regionals

Stetson University College of Law will host the Region 5 ABA Law Student Division Client Counseling Competition on Friday, Feb. 13, and Saturday, Feb. 14, 2015, at its Gulfport, Florida campus. 

This competition simulates a law office consultation in which law students, acting as attorneys, are presented with a client matter. The law students interview the client and then explain how they would proceed further in the hypothetical situation.

Regional assignments will be made by the ABA Law Student Division staff. Please visit the ABA Law Student Division web pages for additional information about the competition.

Tampa Bay Area Transportation


The closest major airport to the Gulfport campus is the Tampa International Airport, which is served by most major carriers.

A much smaller, but closer, airport is the St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport. Allegiant Air provides limited passenger service into this airport.

Ground Transportation

Due to the lack of convenient mass transit, we strongly encourage you to consider renting a vehicle while in the Tampa Bay area. Our Gulfport campus is about 45 minutes from the Tampa International Airport. The hotel is approximately 20 minutes from the campus. Having to depend upon taxi service could become costly.

Super Shuttle is available for transportation between the airport and the hotel.

Bats Taxi offers transportation between the airport and the hotel, and the hotel and campus. Their phone number is 727-367-3702.
