In the course of earning his LL.M., Emanwel published articles in the Widener Law Review about consumer arbitration, and in the Vermont Law Review about the use of the “account stated” doctrine in consumer debt collection actions. He first met Peter Holland as a student in University of Maryland’s Consumer Protection Clinic, and they have worked together ever since.

He is also active in the legal technology field, volunteering his time to help the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service to build, maintain, and analyze a database of millions Maryland court records, in the Client Legal Utility Engine project. Emanwel also helps researchers interested in using the database for public-interest applications.
