Michael Babineau has always wanted to be an agent of change. He had been teaching social studies and science for three years at a Title I school in Tennessee when he applied to Emory Law. His students, already faced with economic disparities, were facing additional challenges distracting them from learning in the classroom. He couldn’t ignore their pain. “Kids are not going to care so much about Hammurabi’s code of law or what a ziggurat is if they’re worried about their dad’s hearing coming up and whether he’s going to be able to make bail. With that in mind, I turned my focus toward public interest work.”

“I chose Emory Law because of the friendly atmosphere and the resources for public interest law in the Southeast. I love living in Atlanta— it has so much history and entertainment, as well as amazing food! There are so many opportunities here and it’s a great place to focus on environmental law in action.”

"The legal market in Atlanta is wonderful because federal courts and companies like Coca-Cola and CNN are headquartered here. If you want the intimacy of a small community but the resources of a large city, Emory has everything you could want. The law school met my personal goals of living in a large city and my career goals, too, because graduates are placed at great jobs after graduation.”

“The faculty at Emory Law are caring and engaged. During my first year, I reached out to a professor to discuss my career path, and the depth of concern and care that he demonstrated made me feel certain that I had chosen the right school.”

“I chose to come to Atlanta because it’s rich in culture and history. The city represents what the South looks like today—an eclectic, burgeoning, and multicultural community. Because of its relative affordability and established markets in service, technology, and industry, Atlanta boasts strong regional ties as well as a robust international reputation. From multinational corporations to local barbecue, there’s something for everyone.”

"Emory Law has given me some of my best friends who, while they are very different from me, possess the same work ethic and passion for the law that I have. At Visiting Day, it was evident that the professors were very engaging and knowledgeable and care for the students. And, the many student organizations provide so many ways to get involved.”
