Emory Law's legal clinics provide students with the foundational skills, judgment, and values necessary to engage in the practice of law.
Emory Law engages students in both substantive knowledge of the law and the practical application of skills learned in the classroom through our nationally acclaimed legal clinics. Students work under the supervision of clinical faculty and experienced attorneys as they advocate for clients with real-world legal needs, experience first-hand the challenges of the legal profession, and begin a lifetime commitment to public service. Emory’s for-credit clinics are on the Approved List of Experiential Courses and count toward the Six-Credit Experiential Learning Requirement. View our Frequently Asked Questions page for more information.
Each clinic's docket is designed to fully immerse students in all aspects of the legal process, allowing them to take the lead on litigation, transactional, and policy matters at local, state, regional, national, and international levels. Clinics provide important, pro bono representation to individuals, community groups, and nonprofit organizations that may otherwise go unrepresented, an integral reflection of Emory Law's commitment to public service.
