Accreditation & Policies


Please note the following information.

American Bar Association Character and Fitness Statement

All applicants must complete an Emory University School of Law application through the Law School Admission Council. Answer each question honestly and completely. Failure to do so may result in the denial or revocation of your admission, suspension or dismissal after matriculation, withdrawal of certification of graduation or revocation of your degree.

If you have been convicted of offenses other than minor traffic violations or if you withhold required information on this application, you may have difficulty gaining Bar admission. State bar organizations often require that you include your law school application as part of your Bar admission application. Accordingly, your answers in your Emory Law application relating to these matters often will be part of your record. As each state bar has specific admission requirements, you should review the requirements for the state in which you intend to practice.

Excluding minor traffic offenses, you must disclose each instance prior to or after your matriculation at Emory Law if admitted even though the charges may have been dismissed or you were acquitted or allowed to plead nolo contendere or an adjudication was withheld or a conviction was reversed, set aside or vacated, or the record sealed or expunged, and regardless of whether you have been told you need not disclose any such instance.

We reserve the right to rescind an offer of admission even after enrollment if any requested information is incomplete or inaccurate.
