Professor Fatma Marouf Featured in August Issue of COMMUNIQUÉ

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

Professor Marouf was recently published in the August issue of COMMUNIQUÉ, the Clark County Bar Association's monthly magazine.

In an article titled "Immigration Detention and Deportation in Nevada," she addresses how individuals end up in immigration detention, while exploring why certain groups such as women, mentally incompetent individuals, and minors remain particularly vulnerable once detained. The article also discusses the conditions of Nevada detention centers, and includes a few of the challenges involved in representing detained individuals.

Drawing on her extensive experience representing individuals before the Immigration Courts, Board of Immigration Appeals, and U.S. Courts of Appeals, Professor Marouf's research probes various problems involved in adjudicating immigration cases at all levels.
