Alumni Student Recruitment
Emory Law encourages you to help us recruit the next outstanding generation of Emory Lawyers through our Alumni Student Recruitment program.
Our goal is to encourage students to think of the Emory Law as a destination school while increasing our yield among top scholars and students who will bring a range of diversity to the school. We do this by providing outstanding customer service to prospective students and their families as they go through the admission process and by providing opportunities for alumni to interact with and to help shape the incoming class.
How You Can Help
Our alumni are crucial to the continued success of the school and the student body. Students are anxious to speak with you to learn about your experiences and how Emory Law helped you become the lawyer you are today.
