Since 1982, the College has been providing valuable opportunities to full- and part-time students pursuing a degree in the practice of law. Courses extensively cover the foundational areas of the law and include an array of flexible elective options that touch on virtually every aspect of public and private practice.
The Juris Doctor will be awarded to students who have completed 90 hours of course work and met all other graduation requirements, including the upper level writing requirement. The College of Law is accredited by the American Bar Association and is a member of the Association of American Law Schools.
The College of Law collaborates with several other academic units at Georgia State University to provide seven unique dual degree programs. These programs allow some selected course work in each program to satisfy requirements in the other.
Applicants must be accepted by both colleges. Interested applicants should contact the appropriate colleges for application procedures and materials.
