Will Emmons, UK law student, awarded Browning Fellowship

PHILADELPHIA — The Peggy Browning Fund has awarded a 10-week summer fellowship to Will Emmons of Richmond, a second-year student at University of Kentucky College of Law.

He will spend the fellowship working at United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers of America in Pittsburgh, PA.

Emmons is one of 70 recipients chosen 500 applicants representing 139 different law schools.

Emmons is a 2009 honors graduate of Brown University where he did volunteer work in support of social justice at Rhode Island Jobs for Justice, building support for Providence janitors and with the Brown Student Labor Alliance.

After completing his degree at Brown, he worked in progressive politics in New England.

He returned to home state in 2011 to continue his work as a community activist and to study law.

Last summer, he began working as a law clerk with the Appalachian Citizens’ Law Center, focusing on disabled miners’ black lung claims.

He also is active with UK United Students Against Sweatshops and Kentucky Jobs with Justice.
