Meet Emily Kiley, MIT Mechanical Engineer and UVA Law Student

Hailing from Manhasset, New York, Emily Kiley earned a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where she competed on the women’s rowing team. Before law school, she interned for X1 Wind, an offshore wind turbine startup.

Kiley said that UVA Law’s most compelling asset is offering the highest level of academics, while also fostering “a collaborative and kind community.”

“As someone who enjoys hands-on learning, I am impressed by UVA Law’s variety of experiential opportunities to put education into practice,” she said. “I also feel reassured that my classmates and I will feel well-supported in our goals by the school’s dedicated and accessible faculty and the Career Development Office.”

She said she aims to focus her work on the intersection of law and technology, and is especially interested in patent and intellectual property law.
