Emily Walsh

Litigation Fellow

Emily is a dedicated advocate who believes in the power of affirmative litigation to change firearm industry practices and obtain justice for survivors of gun violence.

Emily’s work focuses on holding the firearm industry accountable, helping cities and states defend their gun safety laws, and representing survivors of gun violence. She is particularly interested in creatively overcoming industry immunity, and in work concerning ghost guns and preventing hate-motivated gun violence. 

Emily graduated from the University of California, Davis School of Law, where she received the Reynoso Academic Excellence Award. During law school, Emily served as Editor-in-Chief of the Social Justice Law Review and director of a student-run nonprofit that funded public interest work. She also interned at the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence and Everytown Law, and worked part-time as a Litigation Analyst with Everytown during her final year of law school. Prior to law school, Emily worked as a senior campaigner for Amnesty International USA’s End Gun Violence campaign. She received her B.A. in Political Science and Philosophy from Kalamazoo College in 2014, where she was awarded the L. J. and Eva Hemmes Memorial Prize in Philosophy.
