Giving Back

Ensuring access

An Emory Law education ensures our graduates are prepared to enter the workforce and make an immediate impact - whether that is in a law firm, in government, in public interest, or in the corporate world. The generous support of our alumni and friends helps to offset the expense of a quality legal education. Highlighted here are a few of these gifts.
