University of Georgia School of Law

A premier unit of the United States’ oldest public university, the University of Georgia School of Law is regarded as one of the country’s top law schools. Students pursuing one of three degrees–Juris Doctor (J.D.), Master of Laws (LL.M.), or Master in the Study of Law (M.S.L.)–study side by side, learning from a faculty of nationally and internationally recognized legal experts. The cutting-edge curriculum, combining foundational principles, interdisciplinary approaches, and experiential learning, is designed to prepare students for a 21st century practice.

Critical to this mission is the law school’s Dean Rusk International Law Center. Named after former U.S. Secretary of State and Georgia Law Professor Dean Rusk, the forty-year-old Center leads initiatives in international professional education and global practice preparation, including high-level colloquia, the LL.M. degree for foreign-trained lawyers, Global Externships, and the Georgia Law-Leuven Centre Global Governance Summer School at Belgium’s University of Leuven.

Additional law school offerings:

Dual degrees include J.D./M.B.A. and LL.M./M.B.A., earned in partnership with the Terry College of Business, another highly regarded University of Georgia unit

Business Law and Ethics Program, entailing core and practice-based courses in business law, business concepts, and ethical issues, as well as negotiations and transactional law competitions

Experiential learning through the Atlanta and D.C. Semesters in Practice, Corporate Counsel Externship, Environmental Practicum, Business Law Clinic, and other civil and criminal law clinics and externships
