Welcome to Emory Law! All events for Welcome Week are listed below. Please email if you have any questions.

Please note:

  • Attendance: All sessions are in-person and required.
  • SAP-G- Sexual Assault Prevention (SAP-G) is a mandatory virtual training that all students must complete. This training will not be available during orientation, but you will receive emails about it during the semester. Please complete this mandatory training once you receive it.
  • Attire: Emory Law is a comfortable and welcoming community. Our students typically dress casually for class, and comfortable attire and shoes are appropriate for in-person attendance. However, please bring or wear professional attire for your scheduled headshots.
  • Parking for In-Person Modules: Complimentary parking is available in the Lowergate South/Gambrell parking deck directly behind the law school. Please hang the parking pass provided to you by parking and hang it on your rearview mirror. This pass will let you into the Lowergate South/Gambrell parking deck only for the week of orientation.
