- Florida slayer statutes expanded to cover abuse, neglect, exploitation, or aggravated manslaughter of an elderly person or disabled adults.
- The new Florida Community Property Trust Act went into effect July 1, 2021, and is codified in F.S. 736.1501–736.1512.
- A new amendment to F.S. 733.6171 added a disclosure requirement for attorneys intending to rely on a percentage-based method of compensation.
- Remote technology for jury trials began testing due to backlog in the Florida court system due to COVID-19.
