Professor Jayashri Srikantiah is featured in a Stanford Daily story about the Immigrants’ Rights Clinic she directs:

Jayashri Srikantiah, director of the Stanford Immigrants’ Rights Clinic, served on a legal team challenging the Department of Homeland Security for incarcerating four immigrants in California pending legal challenges to their deportations.

Srikantiah has extensive experience defending immigrants, both as the director of the Immigrants’ Rights Clinic at Stanford, and in previous work as an attorney for the ACLU of Northern California.

Under Srikantiah’s supervision, students regularly have the opportunity to represent immigrants whose lives are interrupted by their immigration status. They have participated in efforts to prevent the deportation of non-citizens with criminal convictions, obtained asylum protection for non-citizens fleeing persecution and assisted immigrant survivors of domestic violence in gaining lawful status in the United States.
