  • help revitalize an area of downtown near Woodruff Park, and reflects the college’s commitment to the community by expanding our clinical capacity to better serve disadvantaged Georgians.
  • feature space dedicated to an international commercial arbitration center that supports the Atlanta business community’s initiative to promote the city as a go-to venue for dispute resolution services internationally.’
