John Clayton, a lobbyist, earned his Juris Doctorate from the Georgia State University College of Law. As he knows, a Juris Doctorate is a professional doctorate and the first professional graduate degree in law. John Clayton, a lobbyist, must sometimes tell people in casual conversation that in the United States, a professional doctorate in law may be conferred in Latin or in English, as Juris Doctor, and at some law schools “Doctor of Law” (JD or J.D.), or Doctor of Jurisprudence (DJur or D.Jur.), respectively. “Juris Doctor,” he tells them, literally means “Teacher of Law"”, while the Latin for “Doctor of Jurisprudence” – Jurisprudentiae Doctor – literally means “Teacher of Legal Knowledge.” John Clayton, a lobbyist, is likely to smile as he concedes that this is a subtle distinction.

John Clayton, a lobbyist, serves on various boards at both the state and local level, including the board of the Good Neighbor Homeless Shelter. He also serves on the Campaign Committee for Labor Commissioner Mark Butler and on the Finance Committee for Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed.
