Biography

Polly J. Price joined the Emory University School of Law faculty in 1995. An honors graduate of Harvard Law School, Price clerked for Judge Richard S. Arnold of the 8th US Circuit Court of Appeals. Following her clerkship, she practiced law for several years at King & Spalding in Atlanta and Washington, DC.

In 2017, Professor Price was named one of thirty-five Andrew Carnegie Fellows. The program recognizes an exceptional group of scholars, journalists, and authors with the goal of strengthening US democracy. Price will use her award to write a book about how governments confront the challenge of contagious disease, titled Governing Disease: Epidemics, Law, and the Challenge of Disease Control in a Democratic Society.

Previously, Price was awarded a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation for work in public health law in 2013. In the same year, Price received the Ben F. Johnson Faculty Excellence Award, a triennial recognition awarded by Emory Law.

Price is the author of two books and numerous articles on citizenship, immigration, public health law, and the judiciary. Her most recent book, Judge Richard S. Arnold: A Legacy of Justice on the Federal Bench, includes a foreword by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and a front-cover blurb by former President Bill Clinton. C-SPAN2’s Book TV featured Price’s book in 2009.

At Emory, Price teaches citizenship and immigration law, legislation and regulation, American legal history, global public health law, and Latin American legal systems. She also taught courses in American constitutional history, torts, and product liability at the law faculty in Dresden, Germany, and she has twice lectured at the Free University of Berlin. Price was an invited speaker at the first Global Forum on Statelessness, held at The Hague in 2014. Prior to that role, Price was the US representative in Pretoria, South Africa, at the Equality Law Conference for South African Judges and Magistrates, under the auspices of the US State Department’s Rule of Law Project. Price has served as a visiting professor at Vanderbilt Law School and as the Frances Hare Visiting Professor of Tort Law at the University of Alabama.

While a student at Emory, Price was a Bobby Jones Scholar, a member of Phi Beta Kappa, and point guard for the women’s basketball team. She was a teaching fellow in a Harvard undergraduate course while a student at Harvard Law School.

We offer real-world experiences that give you a glimpse of what life as a lawyer will be like. And we expose you to diverse opportunities to help you determine where your passions lie—whether it’s fighting to protect a patent or a human life. Our professors have unique backgrounds and interests—from pioneering the Feminism and Legal Theory Project to uncovering the intersection of law and religion, to fighting for justice for Guantanamo Bay detainees. But they all share a culture of openness and collaboration with their students and with each other. As an Emory Law student, you are encouraged to challenge the status quo and follow your mind and your heart. You may aspire to do mergers and acquisitions in a large corporation, or to be on the ground pursuing the personal cause or in the courtroom defending an abused child. Whichever path you choose, you will leave Emory with a deep knowledge of the law and a set of valuable skills. At Emory, we prepare you for more than practice. We prepare you to challenge and change the world.
