Professor Marouf in the Las Vegas Review-Journal

The Boyd School of Law is very pleased to announce that Professor Fatma Marouf had her Op-Ed, "No Human Being Is 'Illegal,'" published in today's Las Vegas Review-Journal.

According to Professor Marouf, "Last Saturday, the National Association of Hispanic Journalists hosted a panel discussion on the use of the term 'illegal immigrants.' As a participant on that panel, I write to stress that the term 'illegal immigrants' - used by the Review-Journal and endorsed by The Associated Press - is inaccurate, misleading and dehumanizing."

Professor Marouf currently serves as Associate Professor of Law and Co-Director of the Immigration Clinic at Boyd School of Law. She joined the faculty in 2010, bringing expertise in Immigration Law, International Human Rights Law, and Refugee Law. Her scholarship has appeared in prominent journals such as Yale Law and Policy Review, American Journal of International Law, The Journal of Law, Medicine & Ethics, and Harvard Human Rights Journal. Professor Marouf is a graduate of Yale University and Harvard Law School.
