Mercer University's Walter F. George School of Law in Macon, Georgia is planning to launch a new LL.M. program in Criminal Practice and Procedure in the fall of 2012. The program is still pending approval by the American Bar Association (ABA) and Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
According to the law school, the one-year program is designed to prepare law school grads "for federal criminal practice as a prosecutor, Federal Defender, or private defense counsel."
Mercer Law has been ABA-accredited since 1925. Macon is about 80 miles southeast of Atlanta.
