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

On the outside, the Walter F. George building is steeped in history and tradition. On the inside, you will find only the most contemporary classrooms and facilities. From wired classrooms, to one of the nation’s finest moot courtrooms, to ample study and office space for students and their numerous organizations, to the widely acclaimed Furman Smith Law Library—Mercer’s deep historical roots grow stronger every day through keeping a sharp focus on the future of legal practice.
