Jonathan Greenberg
Department Chair and Professor of English at Montclair State University writes:

Emily Hamburger completed her MA in English at Montclair State. She was a superb student, winning most of our graduate prizes for academic excellence. Her abilities in reading, writing, research, developed through the study of literature and in her previous career as a lawyer, clearly place her in the top 5% of students at our institution. With strong interpersonal skills, a thoughtful and respectful manner in class, and a top-flight work ethic, Emily is pre-eminently qualified for any occupation in the public or private sector that emphasizes research, writing, or analysis.

Lee Behlman
Associate Professor of English at Montclair State and Chair of the Honors Department writes:

I was Emily Hamburger's M.A. thesis director at Montclair State University in 2020. Ms. Hamburger also took two graduate level English literature courses with me. She is one of the finest writers I've ever worked with and is a very diligent, responsible, and kind person. She has my highest recommendation. If you have any questions about Ms. Hamburger and my work with her, please contact me on my cell line, (concealed information)
