Students Raise Most Donations Among Law Schools in Annual Georgia Lawyers’ Food Drive

Mercer University School of Law successfully defended its title as the champion of the Attorney General’s Cup in the Second Annual Legal Food Frenzy – a competition to help feed the hungry in Georgia. In a friendly competition against the state’s other law schools to see which could gather the most food for Georgia’s food banks, Mercer Law School gathered more than any other school. In all, the School gathered 8,037 pounds of food, or 22 pounds per student, to help support the Middle Georgia Community Food Bank, which is more than double the total from last year. This effort is part of a statewide food drive organized by the Georgia Attorney General’s Office and the Young Lawyers Division of the State Bar of Georgia, which will help provide food for the state’s seven regional food banks.

For Marine Captain Brian Magee, enrolling in the inaugural class for the Master of Laws Degree in Federal Criminal Practice and Procedure was, well, something of a no-brainer. For him, the LL.M. is a custom fit.

“One of my professors from [the University of] Georgia who ran the prosecutorial clinic there sent me the flyer on Mercer’s criminal LL.M. program,” Magee says. “I saw that and thought, ‘Perfect.’ Whether I stay in the military or go out into practice, what I want to do is prosecution.”
