Student life in a vibrant locale
The main campus of the University of Georgia School of Law is in Athens, a 211-year-old small city and quintessential American university locale. Trees and centuries-old buildings dot its hilly terrain. Known as the “Classic City,” Athens enjoys a mild climate, diverse population, and affordable cost of living. Its downtown features unique shops, restaurants, and live music, and surrounding neighborhoods offer a variety of housing, schools, and retail centers.
At the heart of Athens is the University of Georgia campus, home to 36,000 students and a full complement of research units. The School of Law is located in two buildings on historic North Campus, close to downtown, the Main Library, university bookstore, international student resources, fitness centers, and Sanford Stadium.
It’s an intellectually stimulating yet comfortable, even fun, lifestyle, as testimonials from our LL.M. alumni and alumnae demonstrate.
About 70 miles from Athens is Atlanta, Georgia’s state capital and home to nearly 5.8 million people, as well as our law school's Atlanta campus. Atlanta is one of the United States’ premier hubs for global commerce. Located there are Fortune 500 corporations like Coca-Cola, The Home Depot, United Parcel Service, and Delta Air Lines, as well as a center for international arbitration and mediation, and many binational chambers of commerce, consulates, and trade offices.
