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 official new address of the Law School will be:
Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School
245 Peachtree Center Avenue NE, Suite 1900
Atlanta, Georgia 30303
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!
Each day, the campus looks entirely different and more ready for us to open our doors. Did you know, our classrooms have stadium seating? There are options for students to sit or stand depending on their comfort level.
We’re almost ready! Books are being set-up in the library and furniture, computers, and AV equipment are being installed. Right on track for the start of the fall semester.
As we approach orientation and the fall semester, the campus is getting closer and closer to occupancy. The furniture is arriving and the library shelves are being installed.
Each week, the rooms become more defined for their intended use and the aesthetic finishes more apparent. The mock courtroom, the offices, the podiums, and study rooms; we can’t wait to welcome everyone this fall to our new campus!
The team continued to see more progress on the floors and ceilings this week. The classrooms, offices, and common areas are looking great. Construction is still on schedule and we look forward to welcoming students back to campus this fall.
This week’s construction meeting might have shown the greatest progress to date. There is carpet and paint throughout a large portion of the project.
With a month of construction left to go, the campus is starting to really take shape. The weekly site visits are going well and we are on schedule.
In addition to the standard weekly photos from the construction site visit, the library staff helped give us some library specific images. The study rooms are looking great! Library Campus
Each week, we are blown away by the natural light that fills our new space. All the little details from signage to finishes are being solidified. We look forward to the weekly meetings to see all the progress… and never tire of seeing the grand spiral staircase.
After the long holiday weekend, the team was back onsite checking the progress of the new campus. More drywall progress and wall layout are happening.
The site team made their weekly visit to the construction site.
Weekly update from the site team. Dean Jace C. Gatewood and administrators meet with the designers on-site to review progress and work through challenges. Renovating a state-of-the-art campus facility in a pandemic is no small feat.
The front desk area will welcome current and future students into their law school. You’ll find screens on the walls listing upcoming campus events and a law school directory.
It’s exciting to see the classrooms and offices take shape and to see the once empty space turn into a law school. Skilled attorneys will walk these halls.
The drywall install is progressing nicely this week. The rooms are really starting to take shape and outlines of classrooms, offices, and corridors are looking great.
Weekly team site visit – excellent progress this week seeing the wall layouts and drywall ready for install. The floor to ceiling windows let in great natural light.
Updates from the team. On-site meetings occur weekly between the Law School administration and construction team to keep the project on track and address questions. Check out the beautiful spiral staircase that connects the floors!
