Welcome to the 2nd Judicial Circuit!

The 2nd Judicial Circuit covers comprises Gadsden, Leon, Jefferson, Liberty, Wakulla, and Franklin Counties. The Second circuit is home to many local bar associations, each of which present unique opportunities for community service, networking, and development of your skill set as a lawyer. The Second Circuit is also distinguished because Tallahassee (the Paris of the Panhandle) is home not only to the Florida Supreme Court, but also The Florida State College of Law, the First District Court of Appeal, the Governor’s Mansion, the Capitol, and several governmental agencies.
