G. Rollie White Scholar in Residence: Lucas Guttentag
Lucas Guttentag, founder and former national director of the ACLU Immigrants’ Rights Project, is senior counselor to the director of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services at the Department of Homeland Security.
The G. Rollie White Public Interest Scholar in Residence Program is supported by a generous gift from the G. Rollie White Trust. The program’s purpose is to bring outstanding legal scholars, practitioners and advocates from the field of public service to UT Law to foster discussion of issues related to public interest law, to raise the profile of lawyers working in this area and to encourage students to view public service as an honored and expected part of every legal career.
Co-sponsored with the Bernard and Audre Rapoport Center for Human Rights & Justice, and the Immigration Clinic.
