Lee Gelernt, Deputy Director, ACLU Immigrants’ Rights Project
Lee Gelernt, who will be visiting Texas Law as a G. Rollie White Public Interest Scholar in Residence, will speak in the Eidman Courtroom. Lunch will be provided in the Jamail Pavilion after his talk.
Gelernt’s visit as a G. Rollie White Public Interest Scholar in Residence is supported by a generous gift from the G. Rollie White Trust. The program brings outstanding legal scholars, practitioners and advocates from the field of public service to Texas 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. Gelernt is Texas Law’s ninth G. Rollie White Public Interest Scholar in Residence.
