Emily Gabor is from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She majored in Economics and Political Science at the University of Wisconsin--Madison. Before coming to law school, she completed a three-month Global Health Fellowship in Accra, Ghana. Emily is a rising 3L at William & Mary Law School, and is interested in pursuing a career in public service, particularly with development work and human rights issues.
For her 2L summer, Emily will be working in Washington D.C. at the ABA Rule of Law Initiative.
