Emory L-STAR

Emory L-STAR is the Emory Law School Travel and Reimbursement program. In launching L-STAR, Emory has now joined with other successful programs at the University of Michigan, Northwestern University, and the University of Virginia.   

Firms agree to assist EPIC in fundraising by donating $165 for hotel accommodations or $35 for transportation to or from the airport for each student call-back when the student agrees to forgo hotel accommodation and/or airport taxis.  (Donations are tax-deductible.) Students can choose to stay with family or friends instead of a hotel or choose not to use transportation provided by the firm.  Participating law firms make a tax deductible contribution to EPIC in lieu of paying for hotel accommodations or transportation costs. The contribution will go directly towards funding EPICís summer grant program.

Participating Firms

  • Arnold & Porter LLP (D.C. office)
  • Chadbourne & Parke LLP (New York office)
  • Fish & Richardson (All U.S. offices)
  • Kirkland & Ellis LLP (New York office)
  • Nixon Peabody LLP (New York office)
  • SUTHERLAND (New York and Washington DC office)
  • Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati (San Francisco, Palo Alto, San Diego, Seattle, Washington DC, Austin and New York offices)


Firms:  To register for Emory L-STAR, send an email to L-STAR, indicating how you would like the name of your firm to read, which of the firm's offices are participating, and the contact person's name, e-mail, and phone number.  You will receive an invoice from us after December 1 including information about how much money you will be donating and instructions for submitting your donation.  

Students:  Review the list of firms participating in the Emory L-STAR program. During or after call-back interviews, please submit the Emory L-STAR Form for Employers to the firm with which you are interviewing.  Submit the Emory L-STAR Form for EPIC to EPICís mail file next to the Office of Career Services.  Please click here for a link to the form.  Remember that you can always encourage employers not on the list to participate in the Emory L-STAR program.
