As you prepare to join us at Emory Law, we have a checklist of actions and forms to complete.

1. Final Transcript The American Bar Association requires Emory Law to receive a final transcript indicating the date of your undergraduate degree conferral. If LSAC does not have this final transcript in your Credential Assembly Service (CAS) report, please have your final transcript sent to Emory Law’s Office of Admission, 1301 Clifton Road NE, Atlanta, GA 30322.

2. Health Forms and Insurance Requirements Complete all required student health information and health forms online with Emory University's online Health Services Portal »

3. Review our Laptop and Computer Recommendations Emory Law students are required to own a computer. We recommend that you invest in a new notebook computer from a reputable manufacturer with a three-year warranty. Try to purchase a notebook computer that balances light weight and long battery life. Most exams are taken on computer and most faculty members permit students to take notes on computer in class. The law school supports both Mac and Windows systems. The University provides anti-virus software and the University plans to provide Microsoft Office365 to students beginning in Fall, 2014. Barnes and Noble at Emory offers an excellent bundle package for students' technological needs. Learn more »

4. Complete the Sexual Assault Prevention for Graduate Students  All incoming Emory University students are required to complete the Sexual Assault Prevention for Graduate Students (Formerly Known as Haven Plus). Sexual Assault Prevention for Graduate Students is a relatively short program: Part 1 takes approximately 45 minutes to complete, and Part 2 (a follow up survey sent 6 weeks after Part 1 is finished) takes approximately 15 minutes to complete.

Part 1 on the module must be taken before September 24 and part 2 must be taken before October 19. To sign in, go to: https://shib.everfi.net/login/default.aspx?id=emorysapgSelect "School of Law (All Programs)" under Group/Class. For more information, click here »
