Dean Johnson Cited in Fortune on Licensing of Immigrants to Practice Law

Dean Kevin R. Johnson is cited as an immigration law expert in a report in Fortune magazine on the practice of law by undocumented immigrants.

Dean Johnson is referenced in the article as stating that although some states have passed immigrant-friendly bills in recent years -- like the 11 states that now allow immigrants to get a driver's license -- so far California is the only one to pass legislative authorization of the admission of undocumented immigrants to practice law. 

Kevin R. Johnson is Dean and Mabie-Apallas Professor of Public Interest Law and Chicana/o studies at UC Davis School of Law. He is an internationally recognized scholar in the fields of immigration law and policy, refugee law, and civil rights.
