    Re: University of Georgia School of Law (Full ABA)

    The University of Georgia School of Law is a graduate school of the University of Georgia. Founded in 1859 and located in Athens, Georgia, USA, Georgia Law was formerly known as the Lumpkin School of Law. The Law School is the second oldest of the University's schools and colleges. The University of Georgia School of Law is currently ranked 28th in the 2011 edition of U.S. News & World Report.

    According to the National Law Journal, Georgia Law placed 18% of its 2005 graduating class in NLJ 250 firms. In addition to this placement, approximately 15% of 2005 Georgia Law graduates went on to judicial clerkships. The median salary of 2008 graduates in private practice was $130,000, with a median starting salary of all graduates at $90,466. Given the University of Georgia School of Law's low in-state tuition of $14,448, the New York Times recently completed a survey comparing starting salaries and degree costs of law schools and found "Georgia Law graduates earning some of the highest salaries in the country while their educational costs were reported among the very lowest, speaking to the quality of the education as well as the excellent return on investment provided at Georgia Law."


    Located in beautiful Athens, the University of Georgia School of Law is regarded as one of the nation's top law schools. The school features a welcoming community, challenging curriculum and experienced professors dedicated to teaching the theoretical foundations of law and providing hands-on experience.

    Admission to Georgia Law is highly competitive. Entering students from the class of 2012 boasted a median LSAT and GPA of 164 [90th percentile] and 3.7, respectively.

    Applications to Georgia Law continue to increase each year. In 2009, applications were up 33% from the previous year, with 3,074 prospective students applying for admission. Of those applicants, only 24.9% were granted admission.


    Georgia Law students publish three highly regarded legal journals, including the Georgia Law Review, the Georgia Journal of International and Comparative Law, and the Journal of Intellectual Property Law. These journals have frequently been cited by federal and state courts, as well as textbooks and other law reviews. Membership on the journals is limited to the 2L and 3L years.

    Dean Rusk Center for International Law and Policy

    The Dean Rusk Center serves to expand the scope of international legal research, teaching and service at the University of Georgia School of Law. The Center was named after former U.S. Secretary of State Dean Rusk, late Samuel H. Sibley Professor of Law at Georgia Law. The Rusk Center coordinates the law school's graduate legal studies (LL.M.), study abroad, and global internship programs; produces several conferences and lectures each year on a variety of pressing international law and policy issues; hosts visiting scholars for research projects and short courses; publishes an annual newsletter and Occasional Papers series; administers an international judicial training program in Athens, GA and Dubai, UAE; and provides a resource for collaboration on international trade and investment issues at the federal and state levels.
