Emory University (School of Law)

Law permeates all of our relationships - with our neighbors next door and those around the world. Law is that which grounds us in the truths of the past and holds forth the promises of the future. At Emory Law School we celebrate both the historical foundations of law and the transformative possibilities of justice. We celebrate the enthusiasm of the finest students in the country, the theoretical inquiry of the finest scholars, and the profession of service of our alumni in both the private and public sectors across the world.

Emory Law School has never been stronger than it is today, and it is poised to lead in legal education and the legal profession in ways that are unparalleled. Our teaching and scholarship in legal history, international law, corporate transactions, law and religion, trial practice, and legal theory all probe the questions not just of the way things are today, but the visions of how things might be tomorrow. Our commitment to the legal profession as a service profession is greater than ever, with renewal of our Loan Repayment Assistance Program and outstanding clinics in environmental law and in child advocacy. We are involved in human rights around the world and in affordable housing in our inner cities. In every venue our alumni are both servants and leaders.

Emory Law School is dedicated to integrative, international, and interdisciplinary legal study. We are committed to promoting scholarly excellence in a diverse community. We educate leaders in society based on our common quest for knowledge, pursuit of public service, and advocacy for justice.

Emory is a tight-knit community of caring faculty that offers an excellent legal education while stressing the highest level of professional responsibility. Our faculty and impressive class offerings give students an opportunity to learn the sophisticated practice of law from among the most preeminent and productive scholars in their fields, with the goal of preparing them to become lawyers and leaders in their communities. The university's location in Atlanta, the gateway to the South, provides outstanding opportunities to intern and learn at many Fortune 500 companies that call this thriving metropolis home. Access to preeminent scholars throughout Emory University, and to Atlanta's cultural, and social offerings, make Emory Law School the logical destination for the best and the brightest.

Emory Law School is committed to the legal profession as a service profession, to teaching the practice of law as well as the study of law, and to our premier centers of excellence.

The essential role of service is reflected in our public interest scholarship, curriculum and organizations. We teach the practice of law through our outstanding programs in Trial Techniques, Intellectual Property, Child Advocacy and Environmental Law and through expanded emphasis on transactional skills. Our faculty members are renowned for excellence in teaching and their “open-door” policies. We have a prestigious faculty with an active and productive scholarly agenda. Our centers of excellence in Law and Religion, International Law, Feminist Jurisprudence and Legal Theory, and Health Law and Policy are interdisciplinary, integrative and international in approach. We capitalize on our advantageous location in Atlanta with a talented and experienced cadre of adjunct professors.

These important elements combine synergistically to create Emory’s unique community, work and mission. Join us as we celebrate in our lives together the promise of law for the future.
