Emory Law's Writing Requirement
Every student must fulfill the writing requirement prior to graduation. This requirement may be satisfied by successfully completing a seminar or a directed research project. Every student must research a topic in depth, submit drafts of a paper to an instructor for revision, and complete a substantial paper on the topic. A minimum grade of C is required to satisfy the writing requirement. Students may also fulfill the writing requirement through production under faculty supervision of a publishable Note or Comment in any of the law school's journals.
