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 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.
