The Immigration and Human Rights Clinic welcomes two new directors, Professor Jocelyn B. Cazares Willingham and Professor Anne Schaufele.
Professor Cazares Willingham joins the University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke School of Law from Georgetown University Law Center, where she served as a clinical teaching fellow with the Center for Applied Legal Studies.
Professor Schaufele joins UDC Law from American University, Washington College of Law, where she was a Practitioner-in-Residence in the International Human Rights Law Clinic and later a visiting Director of the Immigrant Justice Clinic.
Professors Cazares Willingham and Schaufele have continued the clinic’s legacy of providing students the opportunity to gain firsthand exposure to the immigration system in the U.S. through direct representation of clients in humanitarian immigration cases.
The clinic’s new leadership is overseeing separate day and evening sessions in fall 2023, which cover a broad range of immigration matters, including cases involving detained noncitizens seeking humanitarian protection in the United States.
