Emily Ellis '15: Law School Student, Volunteer, and Traveler

It has been a few years since Emily Ellis ‘15 has been a student at Bosque School, but her academic and career aspirations continue to grow. Emily graduated from the University of Alabama in May 2019 with a BA in History and Political Science. Following graduation, she jumped right in to law school at the University of Arizona’s James E. Rogers College of Law as a Dean's Fellow and plans to specialize in immigration law. She is enjoying Tucson and being back in the Southwest closer to home in New Mexico.

Emily is getting some valuable experience volunteering as a legal assistant for Keep Tucson Together, a local nonprofit, which provides free legal aid to people in deportation proceedings in Pima County. Keep Tucson Together is a project of No More Deaths, a humanitarian organization based in southern Arizona. This organization is dedicated to stopping the deaths of migrants in the desert and to achieving the enactment of a set of Faith-Based Principles for Immigration Reform.

In her free time, Emily enjoys traveling. In the past four years, she has been able to explore Jordan, Turkey, Israel/Palestine, the Czech Republic, Belgium, France, England, the Netherlands, Cambodia, Thailand, and Peru.
