Emory Law

Ethics and integrity. Education and the public interest. The strength of diversity. These are among the values of Emory Law, informing the curriculum and attracting the best minds to our faculty and student body. From our founding, Emory Law has prepared courageous leaders to advance the rule of law worldwide. Generous annual support from alumni and friends drives our continued success.

Annual gifts to the Law School Fund for Excellence help us accomplish so much. They can help fund scholarships for talented students from all backgrounds, for example, helping us maintain a diverse community of the brightest legal scholars. The law school’s push to increase diversity began a half century ago when alumni Ben F. Johnson Jr. 36C 40L, dean at the time, and Henry L. Bowden 32C 34L, Emory’s general counsel, led a successful court challenge of racial segregation in Georgia’s private colleges.

We are honored to uphold this tremendous legacy, and today nearly a third of Emory Law students are from underrepresented groups. A diverse student body better reflects the world outside the campus gates, preparing all of our graduates for the challenges of a complex legal environment.

By helping support scholarships, annual gifts allow Emory Law to meet the needs of our students and the legal community. On behalf of everyone at Emory Law, thank you for your gifts.
