Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School (AJMLS) is located in the heart of Atlanta’s Midtown District and offers convenient access to numerous amenities – including the MARTA transit system. Since 1933, the school has made it our mission to provide quality educational opportunities to both traditional and nontraditional students. In addition to being Georgia’s only independent freestanding law school; AJMLS also holds the distinction of being one of the few law schools in the southeast to offer a part-time evening J.D. program. AJMLS strives to foster a diverse environment that values the unique contributions, perspective, creativity and background of each employee.
Consistent with sound educational policy, Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School and its Savannah Law School branch campus, in compliance with Titles VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 (45 CFR 86), and Sections 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and other best practices, does not discriminate on the basis of sex, handicap, disability, race, color, religion, age, national or ethnic origin, marital status, veteran status, political affiliation or belief, gender identity, gender expressions, or sexual or affectional preference in the law school’s educational programs, admissions policies, employment policies, or other school administered programs. Inquiries concerning these policies should be directed to the Dean of the Law School.

On May 6, 2020, the Department of Education issued new Title IX regulations, with the requirement that they be implemented by August 14, 2020. Title IX is a federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. The law also pertains to cases of sexual harassment and sexual assault. As a result of the new regulations, Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School and other schools across the country were required to review and make revisions to existing sexual harassment policies. Our new Title IX Policy is available online and may be accessed here.
While much is happening around the country, we remain committed to providing resources and support to members of our community who are impacted by sexual and gender-based harassment. Dean Harrison-Mercer, the Law School’s Title IX Coordinator, is available to answer any questions you have about your rights and options under our Title IX Policy; the reporting, investigation and resolution processes; and the resources that are available. Dean Harrison-Mercer can be reached at email@example.com or (678) 916-2681.
