About John W. Nelson

I earned an LLM with distinction from the University of East Anglia in Norwich, England. I taught lectures as a lecturer's assistant for the Law American program.
I earned a J.D. from Cumberland Law School at Samford University. I mentored new law students as an assistant to the legal writing program, providing guidance specific to legal writing as well as more general guidance on surviving the first year of law school.
I currently practice law in Georgia, but I am licensed in Tennessee and Washington D.C. as well. My practice involves questions of local government law, general litigation, environmental permitting, and real estate transactions.
I research and write about the ways in which law and technology interact; both when they work together and when they work against one another. I plan on exploring the role of property in today's modern world and the role of contracts in legal globalism.
Below are my current works.
