Professor Cooper Quoted in ABA Journal

Professor Holly S. Cooper ’98, co-director of the UC Davis School of Law Immigration Law Clinic, is quoted in an ABA Journal article on the increased interest in immigration law among law students that has followed in the wake of the Trump administration’s increased immigration enforcement. 

Cooper commented on the Immigration Law Clinic’s efforts to assist travelers detained in airports following President Trump’s executive order barring travel from six Muslim-majority nations. “That’s where the clinic’s skills in federal litigation were really helpful,” says Cooper, noting that UC Davis has one of the few immigration law clinics in the country that handles deportation cases in federal court.
