Campus Construction Update

    Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School (AJMLS) is relocating to the heart of Downtown, Atlanta, just over two miles south of its current location.

    The Law School has secured the prominent architectural firm, SSOE | Stevens & Wilkinson, a full-service architecture, engineering and interior design firm, to lead the multi-floor construction of the new facilities in the renowned Marquis Towers. This will place the Law School at the center of commerce, hospitality, entertainment, transit, retail, and so much more, and will establish Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School as the newest law school facility in the state of Georgia. Stay tuned on this page for construction updates!
