Professor Michael Kagan, an expert in immigration law, asylum law, international human rights, and evidence law, served on the faculties of Tel Aviv University and the American University in Cairo and brings with him a decade of experience building legal aid programs for refugees throughout the Middle East and Asia.

Professor Addie Rolnick, whose ground-breaking scholarship bridges gaps between civil rights, Critical Race Theory, federal Indian law, and Indigenous rights, comes from UCLA School of Law, where she served as the inaugural Critical Race Studies Fellow.

Professor Ruben Garcia, one of the nation's leading experts in labor law, employment law, and employment discrimination, joins the faculty from California Western School of Law, where he taught and wrote about workplace law for eight years and directed the school's concentration in labor and employment law.
