The Georgia College of Law was founded in 1959 by George B. Hallett, a lawyer who wanted to “make college a little bit more affordable.”
The law school is now a thriving community and has the nation’s second-largest class of law graduates.
It also has some of the highest graduation rates in the country, with a 93 percent graduation rate among first-time law students in the class of 2018, according to the American Bar Association.

“We thought that if we could do it, other students should be able to do it.”
The school has expanded to include students from every corner of the state, and it recently added a new law school in Atlanta, and plans to add a law school for the state in the future.
Georgia law school graduates earn an average of $63,000 annually, according the American Law School Association.
That includes $38,000 in student loan debt.
That’s up from $33,000 just three years ago, according a study by the University of Southern California’s Center for Law and the Legal Profession.
The number of students pursuing law degrees has also skyrocketed since Halletti was hired.
According to the latest numbers from the American Association of Law Schools, the number of law school applicants from each state has increased by 60 percent since 2009.
The law school has a reputation for attracting top talent.
Law graduates make up an average 12 percent of the incoming class of 2021 at Georgia, according with the American Academy of University Professors.
The law graduates have also been a big draw to Georgia’s wealthy community.
“There’s a whole lot of money in the state of Georgia,” said Scott Sullinger, a law professor at the University at Albany who was a top recruit at Georgia’s law school.
As the economy improves, many law school students are opting to leave the state to take jobs overseas, said Sullings, who has spent years researching how law schools recruit and prepare graduates.
“They’ve got the best teachers and the best lawyers.
But they also have the worst working conditions.”
Georgia’s reputation for having a great law school and the cost of living is also attracting some students, Sullers said.
Law students can expect to pay $9,500 for their first year, $11,000 for their second year and $14,500 a year after that, according one recruiting consultant.
In 2017, Halleitt hired a new president, John L. Jones, who also happens to be a Georgia native.
He is the first to take over a law institution in the Southeast, and his first major policy speech, which was delivered at the law school, is expected to draw a lot of attention.
It’s not the first time Jones has had to deal with controversy surrounding Georgia’s reputation.
In 2013, Jones was involved in a fire that burned out of control in a cafeteria of the law student union, which caused more than $200,000 to be lost in the blaze.
Jones, a Georgia resident, is also the first African American president at Georgia Law School, joining former president Robert B. Johnson, who is white.
He has also hired a majority of students of color.
For students who want to study abroad, Georgia offers many programs.
The school offers three international law programs, two international business programs, and one international law fellowship.
At the same time, the school’s graduation rate is higher than most major public law schools.
In 2018, the graduation rate for law students at Georgia was 85 percent, the highest rate in the nation.
A majority of Georgia’s students are enrolled in the legal arts, said Dan McBride, a professor of law at the Georgia College at Emory University who teaches a course in the school.
“You’re more likely to have a job in law school if you’re a lawyer,” McBride said.
Students who choose to go to law school will also face a new reality.
In the last 10 years, the legal education workforce has shrunk dramatically.
The workforce as a whole is expected shrink by 10 percent over the next five years, according government data.
That means law school enrollments have dropped by a third.
