Accreditation

Founded in 1873, the Walter F. George School of Law of Mercer University is one of the oldest law schools in the United States and the first one in the state of Georgia accredited by the American Bar Association.

After a $15 million gift from George W. Woodruff, the Law School initiated an innovative curriculum that reinforced its commitment to small classes and professional skills-oriented approach to legal education. As a result, the Woodruff Curriculum has long been viewed as a model for law schools across America, earning the Gambrell Professionalism Award from the ABA for its “depth and excellence of the Woodruff Curriculum and its commitment to professionalism”, as well as other awards for service and professional skills proficiency.
