ABA Approved Since 1923

Emory University School of Law was founded in 1916 and has grown from a strong regional law school to one that is nationally recognized for an outstanding faculty, rigorous curriculum, and highly qualified student body. Emory Law is a member of the Association of American Law Schools, and has a chapter of The Order of the Coif.


The faculty of Emory Law comprises sixty full-time members plus several international scholars who divide their time between Emory and institutions in other countries. They publish extensively, and are active in numerous professional organizations, including the American Bar Association, Association of American Law Schools, American Law Institute, American Law and Economics Association, American Judicature Society, American Comparative Law Association, Centre for the Reform of International Courts, Law of the Sea Institute, American Society of International Law, and Free Enterprise Advisory Council.


Emory Law publishes three student-edited journals, offers an extensive Moot Court program with regular victories in regional and national competitions in recent years, and has more than thirty other student organizations through which Emory students round out their academic experiences and professional aspirations.


The Hugh F. MacMillan Law Library collection includes more than 400,000 volumes and more than 4,000 serial subscriptions. The library is a selective depository for U.S. Government Documents and a full depository for publications of the European Union. The Law Library provides access to a number of electronic resources. Emory law students are trained on both Lexis and Westlaw, and also have wireless access to the university‚??s own research database and to the Internet through the school‚??s server and web site.


The curriculum at Emory Law is broad and includes a strong theoretical component as well as practical training opportunities. In addition to numerous clinical field placements, students may earn academic credit while providing legal assistance through any one of Emory Law‚??s five clinics, including the Turner Environmental Law Clinic and the Barton Child Law and Policy Clinic. In recent years, Emory has established relationships with several foreign countries, which have resulted in regular visits by faculty from Russia, Germany, Hungary and elsewhere.


Emory Law‚??s Kessler Eidson Trial Techniques Program (KETTP) draws on the combined expertise of more than 200 trial lawyers, judges, and district attorneys who serve as visiting faculty. Emory‚??s students learn how to prepare a case for trial as well as how to present themselves before judge and jury.


Emory Law strives to imbue its students with a sense of professional responsibility as lawyers who are servants of democracy. Consequently, the curriculum includes an increasing number of courses in public law. Moreover, because of the strong commitment among Emory law students to serving the public interest, in 1989 students formed the Emory Public Interest Committee (EPIC) for the purpose of supporting pro bono work. As a result of EPIC‚??s work, students are able to spend their summers in public interest employment that otherwise would have been impossible for them.


Emory Law‚??s Office of Career Services works closely with students, graduates, and employers in the placement process. The Career Services Office coordinates an extensive on-campus interviewing program each fall as well as off-campus interviewing programs in key cities; participates in the Southeastern Law Placement Consortium and the South Atlantic Recruiting Conference; coordinates numerous job fairs; and provides extensive individual career counseling to Emory law students and alumni. The staff of the Office of Career Services also includes a public interest coordinator who advises students on careers in the public interest. Emory University School of Law has a proud history of training competent and principled lawyers. Its graduates serve on the bench and bar and in a variety of public interest positions. Emory Law is committed to continuing its record of providing high quality training to committed individuals.
