Ruben Loyo ‘11
Ruben Loyo is a trial attorney at Brooklyn Defender Services. Ruben joined BDS in 2012 after clerking for the Honorable Solomon Oliver, Jr., Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio. He holds a B.A., magna cum laude, from Georgetown University, and a J.D. from NYU Law School, where he was a Root-Tilden-Kern public interest scholar and the recipient of the Christian Jarecki Memorial Prize for outstanding work and commitment in a law clinic. While at NYU, Ruben developed a passion for direct legal services as a two-year member of the Immigrant Rights Clinic. Along with student partners, Ruben successfully represented clients challenging their deportation and detention at the immigration court, federal district court, and federal appellate levels. As a law student, Ruben also co-authored a report titled Locked Up But Not Forgotten: Opening Access to Family and Community in the Immigration Detention System, which examined the abridgement of immigrant detainees’ visitation rights in New Jersey jails and immigration detention centers, where hundreds of New Yorkers are detained during the pendency of their removal proceedings.
