Dean's Teaching Fellows

The Office of Academic Engagement and Student Success is proud to oversee programs such as the Dean’s Teaching Fellows. The Dean's Teaching Fellows are high-achieving upper-year law students selected to serve as academic counselors for their fellow students.

They are the peer-to-peer academic counselors of Emory Law, with an emphasis on law school academic skills. Each Dean's Teaching Fellow holds weekly office hours during which students are encouraged to come and seek assistance on topics such as study methods, class preparations, outlining, exam writing skills, time management, effective class note taking, etc. Teaching Fellows are also available for appointments outside office hours up to a limited amount of time; any law student may contact a Teaching Fellow for an individual appointment (generally about 20–30 minutes duration). We encourage study groups to visit Teaching Fellows together.

Each House is assigned a Dean’s Teaching Fellow, but feel free to reach out to any Dean’s Teaching Fellow for assistance, even if he or she is not assigned to your House! Further, they are not just for new law students. Upper-level students are welcome to take advantage of this excellent resource.
