Lively Intellectual Community
Emory Law fosters close interactions among students and faculty, creating a lively intellectual community. The Center for Professional Development and Career Strategy (Career Center) works with each student from the start of their legal education, helping each to discern their unique path. Emory Law's signature programs in transactional law, intellectual property (TI:GER), and trial advocacy help students build knowledge and skills with a curriculum that both teaches the process and practices the method.
