Jennifer Koh Presents at AALS Clinical Conference

Professor Jennifer Koh presented at the American Association of Law Schools (AALS) Clinical Conference on “The New Normal: Clinical Education at the Intersection of Immigration and Criminal Law,” on May 5.  The concurrent session brought together clinical law professors with criminal and immigration law backgrounds to discuss how law school clinics are reflecting the merger of the criminal and immigration law fields. In her comments, Professor Koh discussed the Western State College of Law Immigration Clinic’s work involving noncitizens facing removal and detention due to prior convictions. She also described the Clinic’s collaboration with the juvenile division of the Orange County Public Defender’s Office, in which the Clinic provides immigration consultations to youth facing juvenile adjudications in Orange County.  Her co-presenters were Professors Linus Chan (Minnesota), Ingrid Eagly (UCLA), and Stacey Tauber (Wisconsin).
