Professional development took an Atlanta turn this week when our LLM Class of 2016 traveled to our state capital to learn more about the judiciary and private-sector law.
The day began with a visit to the Supreme Court of Georgia, founded more than a 170 years ago. There, Presiding Justice P. Harris Hines talked with the students about the jurisprudence produced by him and his 6 colleagues on the high bench.
toured the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit and heard from our 1981 JD alumna, Judge Beverly B. Martin.
The day ended with lunch and practice briefings at the Atlanta office of the global law firm Troutman Sanders LLP, where they were treated to lunch and briefings on legal practice by Mark J. Newman and others.
Our thanks to all who made this day a great success.
