There are three Loyolas, three Washingtons, two Northwesterns, two St. Thomases—and now two John Marshalls among ABA accredited law schools. It's time we gave a warm (if belated) welcome to John Marshall Law School–Atlanta, which received ABA provisional accreditation last month.
JMLS-Atlanta is one of the relatively few schools whose dean (and, in this case, CEO) is a Contracts prof, John Ryan (left), who's previously served as acting dean at Pacific and founding dean at Roger Williams. Also teaching Ks at the school are Michael Lynch (formerly of Florida State and Toledo) and Jeffrey Van Detta, who joined the school in 1999 after practicing for 12 years at Atlanta's Kirkpatrick Stockton.
