Mercer Law has chosen to be smaller than most law schools. The size creates an academic environment that fosters genuine, meaningful relationships with faculty, staff, fellow students, and Mercer Law alumni. You will find professors who consistently keep their doors open and who encourage conversations instead of cutting them off.
This unusually supportive culture, coupled with deliberate curricular decisions, has a transformative impact on our students’ professional success and identity. It helps them answer the seemingly easy yet profoundly difficult question, “What kind of lawyer do I wish to become”? We train our students to not only be the best technically trained lawyers, but also the best ethically astute ones amid a profession where ethical dilemmas abound. And increasingly this is precisely the kind of lawyers employers want to hire.
The Law School faculty has adopted specific learning outcomes designed to achieve excellent preparation of our students for their future roles in the legal profession and as leaders in society.
