Fall 2020: International Students Welcome Week

Welcome to Emory Law! These events are only for students on an F1 visa. In-person attendees will check-in on the 2nd Floor Connector, and sessions will be held in Room 1B. Please email jdadmission@emory.edu if you have any questions.

Students must review all the Welcome Week schedules that apply to their student status. For example, an international student (F-1 visa) who is also a JD student must attend the international student and JD student Welcome Week orientation.

Please note: 

  • Attendance: All required online orientation sessions must be attended live. Your attendance will be tracked in Canvas and Zoom.
  • Return to Campus Requirements: Students attending in-person Welcome Week events must wear masks and practice social distancing while on campus. Students must also undergo COVID-19 testing before arriving at Emory Law.
  • Parking for In-Person Modules: Complimentary parking is available in the Lowergate South/Gambrell parking deck directly behind the law school beginning 30 minutes before check-in and ending once the first session begins. 
  • Attire: Emory Law is a comfortable and welcoming community. Our students typically dress casually for class, and comfortable attire and shoes are appropriate for in-person attendance.
  • International students: If you have an F-1 visa, you are also required to attend events listed below.
