Student Life

Student life at the Mercer School of Law provides a good illustration of our overall attitude and environment. Our students are serious, but not too rigid. They are competitive, but not cutthroat. They are focused, but not limited in their co-curricular activities. And while they are all here to gain a world-class legal education and a degree that commands respect, they also like to have fun.

Student Organizations

You can choose from more than two dozen student groups and organizations—ranging from the Black Law Students Association, to the Christian Legal Society, to the International Law Society, to the Sports & Entertainment Law Society, and many more.

Law Publications

We offer several law publications administered largely by students, including the Mercer Law Review, one of Georgia’s best and most cited legal publications.
