About Atlanta's John Marshall Law School
Founded in 1933, Atlanta's John Marshall Law School is situated in the midtown district of the state capital of Georgia. This American Bar Association-accredited school with well over 2,000 alumni has helped graduates find employment as judiciary members, public and government officials, and private bar practitioners in the state. Among the school’s offerings is a J.D. Honors Program in Criminal Justice, which prepares students to practice as a defender or a prosecutor in criminal law.
Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School has a history of opening the doors to disenfranchised members of the population. As one of the first schools in the South to fully integrate minorities and women, the school today continues its dedication to providing law education for a diverse student body. In fact, the school has garnered recognition for being among America’s most diverse law schools.
Led by Dean Richardson Lynn, the school accommodates non-traditional and adult students, with online courses, evening classes, and part-time options available. Renovations to the Atlanta campus have brought students new classrooms, two new courtrooms equipped with audio and video, plus an addition to the library for the school's large collection of literature. In 2012, the school opened a new branch, Savannah Law School, in historic Savannah, Georgia.
