Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School (AJMLS) opened its new and upgraded campus in Downtown Atlanta’s Peachtree Center in the Marquis One Tower, August 2021. The facility is located at 245 Peachtree Center Avenue NE, Atlanta, Georgia 30303. AJMLS occupies the 18th, 19th, and 20th floors, with the mailing address defined as Suite 1900. The Peachtree Center Hub boasts 50 restaurant and retail options including a pharmacy. Students may access the Peachtree Center amenities by an indoor aerial walkway from the Law School elevator lobby. Also interconnected to the Hub and AJMLS are three world-class hotels and a dedicated MARTA (rail) station. From the seasonal Green Market and on‑site concerts to holiday happenings, the new AJMLS home at Peachtree Center offers students an array of opportunity, amenities, and entertainment. In addition to its own campus, as residents of the Peachtree Center community, AJMLS has access to additional meeting and event space throughout the 2.3 million square feet of office space in six buildings. Students may request use of the facilities to host events such as the annual Law Journal Symposium.
AJMLS’s new home at Marquis One Tower is both LEED certified and Energy Star rated. Recyclable materials are accepted in specified baskets throughout the property and its neighboring amenities.
