Emanuel is a fellow in the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers; a contributing editor of The Developing Labor Law; and a member of the Practice and Procedure Committee and Developing Labor Law Committee of the American Bar Association.

Emanuel is also a member and past chairman of the Labor and Employment Law Section of the Los Angeles County Bar Association; and a member of the Labor Relations Advisory Committee; the Employers Group Legal Committee; and the Labor and Employment Practice Group of the Federalist Society.

Emanuel has been selected for “The Best Lawyers in America” each year since 2008 and as a Southern California “Super Lawyer” in 2013.

Emanuel received his law degree from Georgetown University and a bachelor’s degree from from Marquette University.

Trump said he intends to appoint Emanuel for the remainder of a five- year term expiring Aug. 27, 2021.

The appointment requires Senate confirmation.
