Pro Bono Opportunity – Immigration, Equal Protection, and the Promise of Racial Justice: The Legacy of Jean v. Nelson

Posted on

The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc., the Center on Race, Inequality, and the Law, and the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice at NYU School of Law are pleased to present a legal conference exploring the intersection of immigration and racial justice.


The Immigration, Equal Protection, and the Promise of Racial Justice: The Legacy of Jean v. Nelson conference celebrates the 35th anniversary of Jean, a 1985 Supreme Court decision which considered allegations that the federal government was discriminating against Haitian asylum seekers because of their race.  The conference uses the case as a point of departure to explore the intersection of immigration and racial justice.


The conference organizers will be hosting a 6-episode podcast series leading up to the conference, and could use support from an LLM graduate on copy editing and finalizing transcripts of the podcasts. The only requirements are good English writing skills and attention to detail.


If you are interested, please send a statement of interest and resume to Professor Ellie Happel at ellie.happel@nyu.edu.
