As a law student, Emily helped noncitizen survivors of sexual assault and domestic abuse obtain SIJS, U-visas, and T-visas through an externship with the Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee and the Cumberlands, supported migrant farmworkers through Vanderbilt’s Worker Advocacy Practicum, and worked with a Memphis-based immigration attorney on an asylum case. After law school, Emily clerked for Chief Judge Travis R. McDonough on the Eastern District of Tennessee for two years. Emily is excited to work as an IJC Fellow with Connecticut Legal Services to represent unaccompanied children facing deportation in immigration proceedings.
