Professor Nadia Anguiano ’17 is a visiting assistant clinical professor of law and director of the Federal Immigration Litigation Clinic. 

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. Professor Anguiano also teaches in the area of post-conviction relief.

Professor Anguiano currently serves on the Amicus Committee of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) and previously served on AILA’s Federal Court Litigation Section Steering Committee. She also serves 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. 

Before joining the faculty in September 2019, Professor Anguiano served as a law clerk for Judge Jane Kelly of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit and Judge Susan Richard Nelson of the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota. She worked as a mechanical engineer for six years before attending law school.
