Emily G. Emerson
Emily is a graduate of the International Academy of Macomb (I.B. 2014), Central Michigan University (B.S. 2017), and Wayne State University Law School (J.D. 2020). While completing her Bachelor of Science in Economics and Political Science within three years, Emily was a member of the Phi Alpha Delta (a pre-law academic fraternity) and the Mock Trial Association. Along with being a President’s Scholar during law school, Emily was also a member of the Women’s Law Caucus and was chosen by the law school to be its sponsored attendee at the 2019 Peggy Browning National Law Students Workers’ Rights Conference. Having been raised by parents who collectively have decades of experience in their positions with their respective unions, Emily was exposed to the needs of workers and the importance of unions at an early age. Union officials frequently gathered around her family’s kitchen table preparing strategies for negotiations and arbitrations. Emily is currently a member of Michigan State Bar’s Labor & Employment Law Section and Young Lawyers Section as well as the AFL-CIO Union Lawyers Alliance. Emily joined the firm in 2018 as a law clerk while completing her studies. She continued her work with the firm advocating on behalf of unions and workers as an attorney upon her admission to the Michigan State Bar in 2020. In addition, Emily also advocates for reformation of antitrust laws in order to better protect workers as a member of the Michigan State Bar’s Antitrust, Franchising, and Trade Regulation Section. She has written for the American Bar Association Young Lawyers Division Antitrust Committee quarterly newsletter.
