KENNESAW — Kennesaw State University unveiled the Joe R. Edwards Law Library during a Thursday ceremony.

More than 2,000 books worth approximately $35,000 were donated, a first for the paralegal certificate program.

The law library serves as a site for KSU’s new daytime paralegal classes and is a resource for students in legal research and writing classes.

Housed in the same room where daytime paralegal classes are held, the law library will serve as an asset and convenience for both students and instructors. Its namesake, Joe R. Edwards, was widely known as “everyman’s attorney” in Atlanta. He defended blue-collar and less-fortunate clients — often pro bono. He passed away in 1999 at the age of 71.
