The faculty at Washburn University School of Law in Topeka, Kansas has voted to recommend Emily Grant for tenure and promotion to Professor of Law.
Professor Grant joined the Washburn faculty in 2011, where she teaches courses in legal writing and estates and trusts. She previously taught legal writing courses at her alma mater, the University of Illinois College of Law, where as a student she served as articles editor for the University of Illinois Law Review. She then joined the University of Kansas School of Law faculty as a part-time lecturer in the Lawyering Program and was later named as a full-time lawyering professor while also working with students as part of the Academic Resources Program.
Before starting her teaching career, Professor Grant was Court Counsel for the Supreme Court of the Republic of Palau, a small country in the Western Pacific Ocean. She also clerked for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit and for federal district courts in Illinois and Kansas.
Professor Grant is a co-director of the Institute for Law Teaching and Learning.
