Georgia State Law operates on a different academic calendar than the university, with two regular academic semesters and one summer mini-semester each year. For this reason, law students are advised to use this calendar. More detailed calendar information regarding registration, fee deadlines, etc., is provided preceding each academic term. Contact the College of Law for more information.
