Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School has been educating lawyers and leaders in Georgia since 1933 and now attracts students from around the country, many of whom will practice law in other states and around the world.

A law school named for one of the greatest Supreme Court Chief Justices is making quite a claim. What does this law school do to be worthy of its name? It provides a rigorous legal education that produces competent and ethical lawyers who are dedicated to serving people, especially in under served communities. John Marshall intentionally instills in its students a sense of obligation to the community and to the legal profession--an obligation to pursue justice, rather than mere personal gain, and to improve society, rather than to solely advance personal ambition. Whether its graduates remain in law practice, become judges, enter politics, or succeed in business, these rich values stay with them.

John Marshall Law School offers on a broad curriculum of required courses designed to introduce students to the basic legal principles in the fields of law that all lawyers must master. A tough, well-planned sequence of professional skills training courses and externships offer its graduates opportunities to excel in written and oral advocacy. Finally, both in coursework and in every activity at the school, John Marshall emphasizes the highest standards of ethical and professional conduct.

Chief Justice John Marshall studied law under America’s first great law professor, George Wythe. At John Marshall, students study under the guidance of an outstanding group of teacher/scholars who combine excellent academic credentials with years of practical experience. Courses are taught in small classes that allow for substantial interaction with the professors and the best conditions for learning. Small class sizes also foster close friendships with fellow students and with faculty. Professors will know their students as a person, not a customer, and strive to help them succeed in law school, in law practice, and in life. John Marshall's professors are mentors and role models who balance high expectations with compassion.
