Professor Michael Kagan Gives Presentation at Cardozo Law School

Michael Kagan is an associate professor of law and co-director of the Immigration Clinic at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On May 17-18, Professor Kagan was invited by Cardozo Law School’s Israeli Supreme Court Project to give a presentation at its “Constitutional Conflicts and the Judicial Role in Comparative Perspective” symposium in New York. There, his presentation focused on “The Limits of Deterrence.”

The conference marks the launch of the Israeli Supreme Court Project at Cardozo Law School. A center of study and discussion of the decisions of the Israeli Supreme court, the conference was designed to inform and engage constitutional scholars, lawyers, and judges in democracies around the world.

Professor Kagan spent a decade developing legal aid programs for refugees in the Middle East. In addition, he has taught for three years at the Tel Aviv University Refugee Rights Clinic.
