The American Law Institute (ALI) recently announced that Emily J. Joselson is one of 83 newly elected members joining outstanding judges, lawyers, and law professors from 28 states and the District of Columbia. The American Law Institute is the leading independent organization in the United States producing scholarly work to clarify, modernize, and otherwise improve the law.
With a J.D. from Harvard Law School, and after clerking for then-Chief Justice Franklin S. Billings on the Vermont Supreme Court, Emily Joselson joined Langrock Sperry & Wool in 1983. She represents individuals in catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death cases, environmental cases, and those harmed by sexual harassment, discrimination, retaliation, and wrongful discharge. Emily is recognized as one of the Best Lawyers in America® in personal injury litigation. She lives in Middlebury with her family, and is active on the boards of several non-profit organizations.
“I am proud and excited to be working with the Institute’s distinguished members to influence the development of the law in both existing and emerging areas, and contribute to the public good,” says Joselson.
ALI President Roberta Cooper Ramo said, “This extraordinary group joins the Institute today as the first class of new members in which the Membership Committee had advice and nominations from our recently created 16 Regional Advisory Groups.”
