Emory Law is proud to educate and train the next generation of outstanding lawyers and leaders—intelligent, well-prepared graduates who are excited about their careers and ready for the real world.
A Foundation of Excellence
Emory Law is a dynamic institution dedicated to preparing leaders recognized for their excellent legal skills, as well as their commitment to the communities in which they live and work.
In addition to the traditional JD curriculum, Emory Law provides students opportunities to learn the law from a global, humanistic approach. Building upon an already renowned reputation for providing a rock-solid legal foundation, Emory Law also boasts a leading edge in emerging fields, including international law, technology, and health.
Emory Law equips future lawyers with both a practical and theoretical understanding of the law. Our students have many opportunities to work in externships, clinics, nonprofit organizations, Fortune 500 companies, and prestigious law firms.
From their first year, Emory Law students learn and hone the basic skills of legal communication, from rigorous coursework in predictive and persuasive writing taught by full-time professors to upper-level writing requirements that include researching and writing a scholarly article.
Students can compete for participation in Moot Court Society (whose members write extensive briefs and participate in regional and national competitions) or Mock Trial Society.
Emory Law’s outstanding law reviews include the , Emory International Law Review, and Emory Bankruptcy Developments Journal; students grade-on or are selected via a writing competition. Emory Law also offers a number of litigation and transactional skills classes in which hands-on training and document drafting play a significant role.
