Emma Cheuse joined the Washington, D.C., office of Earthjustice in 2008 after serving as the Alan Morrison Supreme Court Assistance Project Fellow at Public Citizen Litigation Group and clerking for Judge Judith W. Rogers on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.
Emma earned her law degree from the University of Michigan Law School, graduating Order of the Coif in 2006, and received her Bachelor of Arts magna cum laude from Harvard-Radcliffe College in 1998.
She developed her understanding of the importance of environmental protection and community-based advocacy while growing up in the Hudson River Valley, the Adirondacks and the Catskills, and then working for political candidates and campaign organizations in Minnesota, Virginia, Illinois and Massachusetts.
