She has published two books. In Del caos al imperio del Derecho. La búsqueda de la justicia en Shakespeare (Santiago de Chile, Rubicón Editores, 2018), Emilia studied the concept of law and justice in Shakespeare’s tragedies. She also co-edited Ficciones Jurídicas. Derecho y literatura en Chile (Santiago de Chile, Rubicón Editores, 2019), the first contributed volume on Law and Literature in Chile.
