  3. Review our Laptop and Computer Recommendations 
    Emory Law students are required to own a computer. We recommend that you invest in a new notebook computer from a reputable manufacturer with a three-year warranty. Try to purchase a notebook computer that balances light weight and long battery life. Most exams are taken on computer and most faculty members permit students to take notes on computer in class. The law school supports both Mac and Windows systems.
  4. Complete the Sexual Assault Prevention for Graduate Students 
    All incoming Emory University students are required to complete the Sexual Assault Prevention for Graduate Students (SAP-G) education module. SAP-G is an online learning platform designed to empower you to make well-informed decisions about issues that affect your years at Emory and beyond. It takes approximately 45 minutes to complete (closed captioning is available for video portions). You will receive an email to your Emory email address with instructions on how to complete the module.

Include your first and last name and your Emory Net ID. DO NOT INCLUDE YOUR PASSWORD.

The image you upload must be on a white or solid neutral background. The deadline for uploading your photograph is July 1, 2024. More information regarding your EmoryCard can be found here.
