Law Review Members Recognized for IRC Work

We are proud to recognize N.Y.U. Law Review members Anthony Enriquez, Mae Nguyen, Natasha Rivera-Silber, and Kevin Terry for their work with the Immigrant Rights Clinic, which was recently featured in this New York Law Journal article. In the words of a judge who was quoted for the article: “What this clinic is trying to do is ensure that this generation of immigrants has the opportunity to thrive in this country and make this country even greater.”

Reisch Recognized by Third Circuit

Nikki Reisch (Articles Editor ‘12) was lauded for her “exceptional oral advocacy” by Chief Judge McKee of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit at FN 29 in Oliva-Ramos v. Att’y Gen., 2012 WL 4017478 (3d Cir. Sept. 13, 2012). Ms. Reisch and Stephen Kang (Notes Editor ’11) represented the petitioner pro bono as part of the Immigrant Rights Clinic, seeking to have his removal order vacated and the case remanded. The court granted the petition, vacated the removal order, and held that the exclusionary rule may apply in removal proceedings where an alien shows egregious violations of the Fourth Amendment that might transgress notions of fundamental fairness and undermine the probative value of the evidence obtained. We congratulate them on their victory.
