GEORGIA STATE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF LAW was created in 1982 based on its founders’ belief that a first-rate law school not only can, but must be tailored to meet the needs of the students who enter its doors. Recognizing that a unitary approach to education benefits only a select few, the college was one of the first to offer a part-time program of legal study to the citizens of Georgia, enabling a diverse group of students to matriculate and ultimately serve their communities. Although Georgia State Law has grown substantially in scope and reputation during the last 30 years, this flexible, entrepreneurial and student-centric spirit continues to resonate throughout our institution.

Our dynamic location in the capital city of Atlanta situates the College of Law at the center of robust legal, government and public interest integrated communities that benefit from resources, legal expertise and service missions. Our students have unparalleled access to the courts, the legislature and agencies of state and federal government, as well as an incredible array of private businesses and service providers utilizing the skills of legal professionals. We have earned a reputation of excellence within these communities by developing our students into well-rounded professionals with the skills and knowledge necessary to compete at the highest level in any work environment. We have done so while maintaining our tuition at affordable levels, this is a particular point of pride and a reflection of our strong commitment for broad access to legal education.
