Ha Khuong
“To me, one of the most important things when choosing a law school was a sense of community. Emory Law, specifically through AILS, has provided me with exactly that. AILS is a welcoming community that has helped me thrive as a law student. AILS organizes events for students to connect and explore prospective scholarship, employment, and networking opportunities in the U.S. and worldwide. Through AILS, I have befriended amazing people. I'm thrilled to continue this tradition and help the next generation of our AILS family! If you have any questions about AILS or Emory Law, feel free to contact me at hkhuong@emory.edu."

The Asian Pacific American Law Students Association(APALSA) provides educational programs on traditional and alternative legal careers, helps students explore employment and networking opportunities within the legal community in Georgia and throughout the United States, and plans social networking/programming and community-building for the Emory Law community.

Julie Sher
“APALSA has an incredible community, where I’ve met some of my best friends. Moving to a new state and being a first-generation law student was scary, but APALSA’s members and resources supported me through student and attorney panels, on and offline social activities, mock interviews, and many other events. Because of it, I couldn’t be happier with my choice of Emory Law.”

Black Law Student Association (BLSA)

Emory Law’s Black Law Students Associationis a charter of the National Black Law Students Association. Our organization takes pride in our community service efforts, academic and professional engagement, and fostering a community that uplifts and promotes the success of Black students at Emory Law. We were nationally recognized as regional Chapter of the Year in 2020, 2018, and many previous years. Our competitive Moot Court and Mock Trial teams have also received Best Brief, Top Oralist, and Best All Around awards. We enjoy promoting excellence and creating a family environment within our membership.

Diamond Alexander
“I chose Emory Law primarily out of desire to be a part of Emory Law BLSA. I knew that law school would be difficult, and I wanted to have a support system within my educational institution that would help me succeed. Once arriving at Emory, the family environment within BLSA excited me a lot! Moving to Atlanta was a big step for me and for many other BLSA students, so it has been great to join this community and have support while we are physically away from our families. I also enjoy the opportunities, challenges, and consistent encouragement that I know I can look forward to within this organization. BLSA continues to grow each year. If there is something you think would improve BLSA, we always welcomeideas and new developments. It is part of what makes this organization so great, and it is what makes its offerings unique to its membership each year! We hope that you will consider meeting with us during admitted students events as part of Explore Emory Law this March and April!”

It offers support and encouragement for students who become discouraged while offering a nonlegal avenue for students to voice their concerns and ideas. Students gain advice on how to live according to Scripture even in law school and the legal profession. Advice is also given regarding the day-to-day life in the law school, including advice on classes, professors, exams, and jobs. The Christian Legal Society is open to all lawschool students and welcomes members of other religious groups.

Shawn Ren
“From when I first started in law school, being a part of Emory Law’s Christian Legal Society has been one of my favorite experiences. Meeting peers and colleagues that shared the same faithas me in an organization that feels like a family made the transition to law school so much easier. CLS puts on wide-ranging events, from opportunities to hear from Emory Law’s Christian professors and network with Christian attorneys to weekly community gatherings and fun get-togethers. If you’re looking for community in law school, CLS is an incredible place to find it. I hope you’ll give our organization a look in the fall!!

Latin American Law Students Association (LALSA)

The Latin American Law Students Association(LALSA)is committed to the academic, social, and professionaldevelopment of its members and works to promoteHispanic/Latinx culture within the law school andsurrounding community

Taylor Fay
“What makes LALSA special is that it makes me feel secure, in that I know that I have people to turn to when I need help or general school advice. When I was considering the Transactional Law Certificate Program, I turned to LALSA for help. I was able to get in touch with a 2L in the program and he talked to me about his professors, the courses he was taking, and why he applied. Later that day I submitted my application to complete the certificate!"

Taylor Fay

  

Evan Nelson
“LALSA was the first organization that welcomed me over my admitted students weekend visit to Emory Law, and they left a great first impression. LALSA is a warm, friendly, and inclusive organization that gives Hispanic law students (even if only half-Hispanic like me!) an immediate place to begin building community."

Sameer Saboung
“Welcome to Emory Law! Since day one, MLSA has provided me with a community that has allowed me to thrive here. As a 1L, I was very thankful for the guidance, resources, and support given to me by MLSA upperclassmen, and I strive to make sure I give back to the incoming 1Ls in the same way. MLSA has always provided a warm and welcoming safe space, and, most importantly, it has introduced me to friends that have deeply enriched my law school experience.MLSA strengthens the spiritual and social bonds of the Muslim community at Emory Law and advocates on its behalf, while also building solidarity with other affinity organizations. I am excited to welcome our next cadre of MLSA members and future lawyers! If you have any questions about Emory Law, law school in general, or MLSA, please feel free to reach out to me at ssaboun@emory.edu."
