* Keynote Speaker

Keynote Speaker: Lucas Guttentag

Professor Guttentag recently began serving the Obama Administration as Senior Counselor to the Leon Rodriguez, Director of U.S. and Immigration Services, a component of the Department of Homeland Security. Prior to this appointment, Professor Guttentag was a professor at both Stanford and Yale Law Schools, where he taught courses in immigration law, constitutional litigation, migration policy, and the intersection of civil rights and immigration law.

Professor Guttentag is a founder and former national director of the American Civil Liberties Union Immigrants’ Rights Project, which he led from 1985 to 2011. Over the past thirty years, he has represented immigrants in class action and constitutional cases before the U.S. Supreme Court, many federal circuit courts, and federal district courts. In 2001, he argued successfully before the Supreme Court to establish the right of immigrants to independent federal judicial review of administrative deportation orders. He has also challenged the indefinite detention of Haitian refugees at Guantanamo Naval Base, a federal law penalizing citizens and immigrants who marry during deportation hearings, and many state and local immigration laws.

Professor Guttentag received his JD cum laude from Harvard Law School (1978), his AB with honors from the University of California Berkeley (1973), and he served as law clerk to Judge William Wayne Justice in Texas.
