Law school is a marathon, not a sprint. Over the course of your time at Emory Law, there will be various stressors and it is important to take care of yourself holistically and not just academically. The university and law school have excellent resources to support students and we encourage you to take advantage of them as a student. Our office is happy to assist students in connecting to any of these resources and work to highlight them in a yearly “Wellness Week” each February

This service is confidential. If you wish to be added to the Listserv, interested law students should contact Niki Irish.
  • Conversation Connections: Conversation Connections is a program pairing Emory Law international students with other Emory Law students and staff whose first language is English. This program is a collaboration between Graduate Programs and the Office of Academic Engagement & Student Support. You can decide when and how often to talk and start to enhance your life by learning about cultural similarities and differences. If you have any questions, please contact Kirsten Schaetzel at or Cody Teague at. Look out for announcement and sign up information at the start of the term in On the Docket!
