At Mercer Law School, students enjoy a small, supportive community. Faculty and staff are committed to the individual success of every student. Professors’ doors are open to students, and students benefit from an uncommon degree of individual attention. Many members of the Macon and Atlanta bar serve as adjunct faculty; students take advantage of numerous externship opportunities; and state and federal clerkships are available here.
We are part of a dynamic private university which features other graduate programs such as medicine, business, and pharmacy; outstanding music and arts offerings; and a strong athletic program. Mercer University is a member of the Atlantic Sun Conference in the NCAA’s Division 1. The Bears participate in 17 varsity sports, and the 18th will be football, beginning in 2013. With more than 8,000 students enrolled in 11 schools and colleges on campuses in Macon, Atlanta, and Savannah, and at four Regional Academic Centers around the state, Mercer is consistently ranked among the nation’s leading institutions by such publications as U.S. News & World Report and the Princeton Review.
The law school’s proximity to Atlanta provides all the opportunities of an international city within a short distance. Atlanta hosts numerous law firms, several Fortune 500 headquarters, various government operations, and an array of sports and culture venues.
At Mercer Law School we have the best of both worlds: a small school in a supportive community, with connections to one of the nation’s most influential cities. Mercer Law School offers its students the opportunity to learn more, and live more, in a setting that values hard work, collegiality, and public service.
