Morris Brown College Graduates Now Have A Clear Path to Law School

Historically Black Morris Brown College in Atlanta has entered into an agreement with the John Marshall Law School to create a pathway for Morris Brown graduates to earn a law degree. Founded in 1933, John Marshall Law School is Atlanta’s only stand-alone law school focused on preparing talented students for legal careers in the public and private sectors.

Under the agreement, Morris Brown students will be able to seek application guidance from the Office of Admissions at  John Marshall Law School and eligible applicants who meet the standard admissions criteria will receive priority law school admission.

“The partnership between John Marshall Law School and Morris Brown College will open doors for many students from underserved communities that show promise of succeeding in law school,” said Jace C. Gatewood, dean of the John Marshall Law School. “This partnership signals a change in the future of legal education where institutions work together to improve the educational opportunities for all students.”

Morris Brown College President Kevin James added that “we are ecstatic to partner with Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School. Morris Brown students now have an official pathway and opportunity to earn a juris doctorate.”
