Office of Student Affairs
The Office of Student Affairs is a small, friendly and confidential office that can assist you in finding the help you need at Emory Law.
We are the primary liaison for students with Emory Law administration and faculty. Our office is responsible for enhancing the quality of life of students through support for student groups, academic assistance, counseling and referrals to Emory University resources. We also assist faculty in administering final examinations, arrange New Student Orientation, oversee matters regarding the Professional Conduct Code and organize events and speakers on a broad range of topics. As part of academic assistance, we offer the Study Smarter series aimed primarily at helping 1Ls with their law school study skills, but open to all students.
Please do not hesitate to call our office or visit our Student Resources page for additional information and helpful links.
