Emma Hetherington

The University of Georgia School of Law has hired Emma Hetherington as the director of its innovative legal clinic to represent victims of child sexual abuse in civil suits against their abusers.

“It was an opportunity I could not say no to,” Hetherington, a 2011 Georgia Law graduate, said of her new job. “It combines everything I’ve done in practice with everything I love doing, and I get to help train a new generation of attorneys who are going to care about those who are abused as children and protect their rights.”
