Introduction to this Lib Guide

The purpose of this lib guide is to serve as a tool for practicioners and law students interested in conducting thorough research on Florida's Stand Your Ground law. This law has been a popular topic recently due to the death of Trayvon Martin in 2012 and the George Zimmerman trial in the summer of 2013. This case and the subsequent media coverage has drawn considerable criticism and attention to Florida, and it appears as though the controversy surrounding the law has only grown stronger since it was enacted in 2005.
