A Dedicated Home: Dean Kaminshine on Our New Building
The new building increases the College of Law’s capacity to attract top students and engage with the greater legal community. It affords us the space to expand and improve our programs to serve more students and help our clinics assist underserved Georgians.

The north entrance to campus and part of the university’s Woodruff Park District plan — an academic corridor south of Woodruff Park that includes 25 Park Place, 55 Park Place and the new Creative Media Industries Institute.
Twenty-one state-of-the-art classrooms, including a 230-seat formal moot courtroom/ auditorium.
Ample space for clinics to provide legal service to the underserved.
It is designed to make students want to stay to study, work in teams and interact with faculty throughout day. The choicest spaces in the building are dedicated to the students. The top two floors are dedicated to the law library with its natural light, outdoor terrace and collaborative learning commons.
The faculty offices are embedded among the classrooms to facilitate greater student interaction. The classrooms are designed with the latest law curriculum advances in mind. The skills suite on the first floor features flexible classrooms that transition from seminars to courtrooms to mediation rooms.
The new building features a conference center to bring the legal community in for closer collaboration and engage in a great community conversation. The greatest example of this kind of collaboration is the space devoted to the Atlanta Center for International Arbitration and Mediation, which is designed to help the city become a leading center for resolving international commercial disputes.
