SavannahSavannah Morning News, Savannah Law School to Close After Spring Semester:

Savannah Law School will be closing at the end of this semester, according to a student who was in a meeting held at the school on Wednesday.

Third-year student Erica Drew said Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School Dean Malcolm Morris and Treasurer for the school’s Board of Directors Michael Markovitz announced at town hall meeting on Wednesday that the Savannah Law School building on Drayton Street had been sold. ...

Current students were told that they would be relocated until graduation, per requirement by the American Bar Association. Students were not told where they would be relocated, Drew said. ...

Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School purchased the 199-year-old Candler Hospital to use for its Savannah Law School campus in 2012, according to the school’s website. A restoration of the building’s facade was completed in 2014, which re-opened East Huntingdon Street between Drayton and Abercorn streets.
