Emma Marshall is the 2018-2019 Law Liaison for the AP-LS Student Committee! Emma is preparing for the 4th Annual Legal Workshop at the Conference in just a few weeks. She is the voice of law students on our committee and is excited to share the First Amendment with you all on Thursday, March 14th at 10:30AM! Emma answered some questions for us.
If you could only have 3 non-psychology books on your bookshelf, what would they be?
1. Bossypants by Tina Fey
2. Pawnee: The Greatest Town in America by Leslie Knope
3. The Wit and Wisdom of Will Rogers by Will Rogers
If you were not in graduate school what would you do?
Wait, did they kick me out in this hypothetical? If so, I would likely try to do something with the whole law school thing. But if I had never gone to graduate school in the first place I would like to think I would be working at an Escape Room by day and at a Cheers-style bar by night.
What is one professional goal you have?
To conquer the whole imposter syndrome thing.
Why did you join the AP-LS Student Committee?
I ran for a position because I genuinely enjoy being hyper-involved in organizations like AP-LS and wanted to give back to a community that has helped me so much in my career thus far. Also, I enjoy designing silly T-shirts and I hoped this committee would vest me with the power to do that.
Why psychology and the law?
Because when I was a 20 year old directionless college sophomore I was lucky enough to stumble my way into a Psychology and Law course taught by the inimitable incoming AP-LS President Dr. Jennifer Groscup and she got me hooked for life.
Who is one professional and one personal role model?
Professional role-model: Emily Gilmore
Personal role-model: Also Emily Gilmore
