Associate Professor Michael Kagan Serves as Guest Instructor at Tel Aviv University

Michael Kagan is an Associate Professor of Law and Co-Director of the Immigration Clinic at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

Professor Kagan served as a guest instructor at the Refugee Rights Clinic at Tel Aviv University from March 9 to 19. He taught three substantive law classes and presented at two research workshops on his current research involving the intersection of criminal and immigration law. 

Professor Kagan has written several of the most widely cited articles in the fields of refugee and asylum law. His research on credibility assessment in asylum cases has been repeatedly relied on by federal appellate courts and, according to a 2012 commentary, has "guided most subsequent research and analysis on the topic."
