Emory Law Archives

In response to the COVID-19 virus and in accordance with Emory University Libraries, the Emory Law Archives are currently closed to visitors.  During this period of closure, the ELA will continue to provide limited services, as we are able, including responding to research queries and holding research appointments remotely, but reproduction services will be limited and reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

More more information on using the digitized portion of the Emory Law Archives, please see the handout below.
