The concept of American public higher education was first articulated in the 1785 charter for this university, and today UGA is one of the country’s best public research universities. As an alumnus of the School of Law, I take great pride in that standing. 

UGA is today an institution of some 36,000 students whose academic quality rises every year. The faculty are committed to excellent teaching, innovative research and scholarship, and service in the land-grant tradition. I am honored to serve with them. During the past year, our students won dozens of prestigious academic scholarships, including UGA’s 24th Rhodes Scholarship, a signal of the tremendous talent and opportunity found here. 

The University of Georgia is a dynamic, exciting, meaningful place. Our campus is one of the most beautiful in America, and I invite you to visit. If you are a prospective student, please visit the Admissions website.

Thank you for your interest in the University of Georgia.
