Sheila Shadman Emerson is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she received her Bachelor of Arts degree and majored in Spanish and Communication Arts.  Ms. Shadman Emerson received her Juris Doctor from Marquette University Law School in 2011, where she participated on the Moot Court Board.

As an Adjunct Professor at Marquette University Law School, Ms. Shadman Emerson works alongside Professor Katie Kegel with the Milwaukee Street Law Project, where they teach second and third year Marquette law students in a weekly seminar. The law students in the seminar then go on to teach a yearlong introductory law course at local high schools. Law students cover a variety of substantive legal topics in their high school classes including criminal law, individual rights, juvenile justice, housing, and tort law.  The culminating event each year is a citywide mock trial competition. Through this opportunity law students are able to use their substantive legal knowledge, gain inroads into the greater Milwaukee community, and use practical legal skills such as public speaking, research, and case analysis. 

In addition to serving as an Adjunct Professor of the Milwaukee Street Law Project, Ms. Shadman Emerson is an attorney at Halloin Law Group, S.C. where her practice focuses on business, construction, and real estate litigation, and insurance recovery.
