Non-Discrimination Policy

Emory University is dedicated to providing equal opportunities to all individuals regardless of race, color, religion, ethnic or national origin, gender, genetic information, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, veteran’s status, or any factor that is a prohibited consideration under applicable law. The services of the Center for Professional Development & Career Strategy are available only to those employers whose practices are consistent with this policy.

The following information may be of interest to employers as you evaluate our students' resumes.

  • Emory Law's policy is to rank only the top 1/3 of each class. Our GPAs are calculated on a 4.30 scale. If you'd like to receive a copy of the most current grade percentiles and cut-offs, please email Carolyn Roan.

Release of Student Information

It is Emory Law's policy not to release contact information about our students to employers, including addresses, telephone numbers, or e-mail addresses.

Emory Law Recruiting Policies & Guidelines

All recruiting activity shall be guided by NALP’s Principles for a Fair and Ethical Recruitment Process. Additionally, should there be disagreements between Emory Law students and employers around the interpretation and implementation of the Policies & Guidelines, the school’s Career Center shall be consulted regarding best practices and final decisions. 

General Provisions

  1. All offers of employment shall be made in writing, clearly stating if reaffirmation is requested and by what date. If such reaffirmation by the student is not given by that date, the offer may be retracted.
  2. A copy of the employment offer shall be forwarded to the Recruiting Manager of Emory Law’s Career Center (Carolyn Roan) contemporaneously with the student’s receipt of the offer.
  3. A student shall not hold open more than three offers of employment at any one time. The student will release an excess offer no later than three business days after its receipt.

First-Year Student Recruiting and Priorities

To position law students to be as successful as possible, their efforts during the first semester of law school should be focused on their studies and not their job search. 

We ask that private sector employers not initiate formal one-on-one recruiting contact with first-year students before November 1, UNLESS they plan to make final hiring decisions before grades become available in late January.
