Mercer University
Mercer Law School
Prospective Students


Mercer’s esteemed reputation and close-knit academic community draws students here. But it is usually what they see and feel during their visit that keeps them here. Considering that law school will be an investment of money, time, and focus, we strongly encourage you to visit our beautiful campus in the historic and charming community of Macon, Georgia.

A Practical Elegance

At Mercer Law, you will find a law school that is self-contained in a beautiful, four-story building that was designed as a reproduction of Independence Hall, the historic location in Philadelphia, Pa., where the Declaration of Independence was debated, adopted and signed. Mercer Law is one of America's oldest law schools. The law school building sits atop Coleman Hill overlooking downtown Macon and is a picturesque icon of Mercer's rich tradition.
