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.
