Stopped by GSU on saturday to visit, from what I hear it sounds like they are building a new law school. Anyone heard anything about this? Also, received my packet in the mail on Saturday.
From what I know, scheduled to break ground this fall and open for fall 2015 semester. By all accounts, the new building is going to be amazing: more/better classrooms (especially the large/1L classrooms, higher tech smaller rooms, etc.), big conference hosting space, more clinic space (I think we'll have at least 3 in-house clinics starting next year), 2-floor library with baller outdoor terraces, more student study rooms, etc. Basically, it will have a much more "law school" feel, more student gathering areas, less disjointed that UL building is now. Going to be right next to the new business school, so they're going for these two communities coming together.
Only real issue will be parking, but it seems like there won't be much of, if any, of a net loss in spots. There just won't be any new dedicated parking I don't think. The school is working with nearby garages for more student spots, but it's downtown Atlanta: it's not perfect, but it'll be fine.
