At Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School, legal writing and advocacy are not just courses; they are integral parts of our school’s curriculum. The entire faculty recognizes the value in quality legal skills education, both to the institution and to the success of its students. As part of the faculty’s commitment to keeping student-to-faculty ratio low in the legal skills classroom, the number of full-time faculty dedicated to teaching primarily in the Legal Skills & Professionalism Program has doubled in recent years and is expected to continue growing.
