Professor Nadia Anguiano '17 Named Co-Recipient of the 2023 Jack Wasserman Memorial Award

Professor Nadia Anguiano '17, director of the Federal Immigration Litigation Clinic— part of the James H. Binger Center for New Americans— was recently recognized for her work on the national Amicus Committee of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA). The Amicus Committee was awarded with the 2023 Jack Wasserman Memorial Award, which was established in 1980 and is given in recognition of "excellence in litigation in the field of immigration law." Anguiano previously served on AILA’s Federal Court Litigation Section Steering Committee and on the Board of Directors of the Minnesota Freedom Fund, a nonprofit organization that pays criminal bail and immigration bonds for incarcerated individuals who cannot otherwise afford to pay.

Professor Anguiano and her clinic students represent noncitizens in complex immigration cases before U.S. District Courts, U.S. Courts of Appeals, and the U.S. Supreme Court. Her work is particularly focused on challenges to the adverse immigration consequences of criminal convictions, challenges to unlawful immigration detention, and upholding due process rights in immigration proceedings. She also teaches in the area of post-conviction relief.
