Established in 1859, the University of Georgia School of Law is consistently regarded as one of the nation’s top law schools. The school is proud of its longstanding commitment to preparing the next generation of legal leaders and ensuring a strong return on investment for its three degrees – the Juris Doctor, the Master of Laws and the Master in the Study of Law. The school’s accomplished faculty includes nationally and internationally renowned scholars, and its more than 10,000 living graduates are leading figures in law, business and public service throughout the world. Connecting students to these thought leaders and opportunities to serve state and society is central to the school’s mission.

Today, top-ranked international law offerings at the University of Georgia School of Law prepare students to practice in areas as varied as business and trade, arbitration and dispute settlement, the environment and sustainable development, human and children’s rights, and global governance and collective security.
