Posted May 15, 2020. To settle a pandemic-related financial crisis at UMass Dartmouth, law faculty are not receiving research compensation in summer 2020. I will be away from my desk, May 16 to August 15. Blog posts will be sparse, and I will not receive email. On the upside, summer 🌞! If you need to reach me, please send a message through the faculty assistants’ office (Ms. Cain and Ms. Rittenhouse). Stay thirsty.

UMass Law prof learns immigration law in action

Prof. Farber
My UMass Law colleague Professor Hillary Farber is "Blogging from the Border" this semester, as she works for the Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project in Arizona.  As she explained in her initial post, she went to Arizona with no particular expertise in immigration law, but wanted "to bring humanity to this migration struggle."  You can follow her on this adventure via WordPress


The Florence Project accepts attorney volunteers to represent detained immigrants in removal proceedings and to work on matters including cancellation of removal for legal permanent residents, citizenship claims, adjustment of status for refugees, asylum, and special immigrant juvenile status for abused, abandoned, or neglected children.  Learn more at the Pro Bono Program page of the project website.
