From Dean Annette Clark
The spring semester is flying by, and our students are hard at work in their last few weeks of class. I am continually proud of the efforts of our students and faculty, including the group of students in our Immigration Clinic who spent their entire Spring Break in court. Along with their professor, Won Kidane, they successfully advocated for five refugees, who now have the right to legally stay in the United States. This is life-changing work, not only for the clients, but also for the students as they experience the transformative impact of a Seattle University School of Law education. Our students are truly powerful advocates for justice.
Professor Kidane, in addition to being a devoted mentor and teacher, is also a nationally and internationally renowned scholar. It is with great pride that we announce that Won has won a Fulbright Scholar Award to spend a year teaching and conducting research in his home country of Ethiopia. Congratulations, Professor Kidane!
Speaking of our outstanding scholars, Margaret Chon, the Donald and Lynda Horowitz Professor for the Pursuit of Justice, and Professor Lorraine Bannai, the director of the Fred T. Korematsu Center for Law and Equality, will present at an upcoming Influential Voices lecture April 15. They will join our keynote speaker, Professor Eric Yamamoto from the University of Hawaii, for his lecture, "Repudiating the Supreme Court's WWII Japanese American Ruling." That lecture is based upon the landmark book he co-wrote with Professor Chon, "Race, Rights and Reparation: Law and the Japanese American Internment."
I hope you will join us for this Influential Voices program. And, as always, I thank you for your support.
