Transfer students are not permitted to participate in semester abroad programs.
1) The summer program must be run by an ABA accredited law school. A list of the "Foreign Summer Programs" can be found by clicking here.
2) Students can take up to 8 credits during the summer or up to 16 during the semester at one of our exchange programs.
3) Courses must be approved in advance by the Assistant Dean for Student Affairs.
4) You cannot earn credit for courses taken on a pass/fail basis.
5) You do earn credit for any courses for which you receive grades of "C" or higher (not "C-").
6) Credits you earn count toward the 90 credits required for Emory graduation.
7) Grades appear as "pass" on your Emory Law School transcript and do NOT count toward your GPA.
8) Emory scholarships do not transfer to a study abroad program except for our exchange programs. Contact your Financial Aid officer to determine whether you can obtain loan funding and how much you can obtain.
9) In general, all law students must complete 6 semesters of residence at the law school (you are in residence if you are enrolled at Emory for at least 10 credits). However, students may "tack" together two summers of at least 5 credits to take the place of one semester of residency at the law school, reducing the residency requirement to 5 semesters.
