How Our New Building Can Transform the College

HD_DeanKaminshine_outdoorThirty years ago, Georgia State University launched a law school to make a legal education more accessible through a public, flexible, practice-based program in downtown Atlanta. Today, the College of Law is set to transform legal education in Atlanta once again with a new building designed to foster our core mission: community engagement, student learning and the programmatic demands of a 21st-century legal instruction.

Engagement with the Community

Consistent with our mission, we strive to enhance public awareness of and access to information about the law and legal services through a variety of means.

The new building provides a unique opportunity to become an intellectual and professional hub that encourages interaction and synergy. Through the new conference center, our clinical center and the 230-seat ceremonial courtroom, we will open channels among students, alumni, the university community, members of the bench and bar, legislators and policymakers, and nonprofit organizations dedicated to service and advocacy.

The college also will devote part of the fourth floor to an international dispute resolution center in support of Atlanta’s goal of being a venue of choice for legal community and international business.


The new building amplifies the pulse of downtown. Located at the crossroads of Atlanta’s business, legal and government communities, it stands at the gateway to the iconic Peachtree Street. Its northern neighbors are the city’s leading business and law firms, and to the south, Georgia State University, the capitol, the courts and Atlanta’s major legal institutions.

We are eagerly looking forward to the completion of the new building, and hope you will join us in support of the project and as visitors in 2015.

Signature, Steven Kaminshine
