    Re: Emory University School of Law (Full ABA)

    Emory University School of Law (also known as Emory Law or ELS) is a first-tier US law school that is part of Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. It is ranked #30 among ABA-approved law schools by the 2012 U.S. News & World Report. In 2007, ranked Emory the most underrated law school in the U.S.

    Emory Law is located in Gambrell Hall, part of Emory’s campus in the Druid Hills neighborhood, six miles (10 km) northeast of downtown Atlanta. Emory's location in Atlanta, a national business and legal center, gives law students the opportunity to take advanced classes from, and work with, some of the leading judges and lawyers in the United States.

    About Emory Law

    At Emory Law, we equip future lawyers with a practical and theoretical understanding of the law.

    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.
