Professor Skinner is an Assistant Professor of Clinical Law at the Willamette University College of Law, where she heads the International Human Rights Clinic.

Her publications include

-When Customary International Law Violations 'Arise Under the Laws of the United States,' Brooklyn Journal of International Law (forthcoming);

-Customary International Law, Federal Common Law, and Federal Court Jurisdiction, 44 VAL. U. L. REV. 825 (2010); and

-Bringing International Law to Bear on the Detention of Refugees and Conditions of Detention in the United States, 16 WILLAMETTE J. INT'L. L. & DISP. RESOL. 270 (2009).

According to Professor Skinner, the poster

discusses a case my clinic has filed and is litigating on behalf of one of the former Gbay detainees.  It is the only such case outside of the D.C. courts, which have dismissed similar cases. We recently won a motion preventing DOJ from transferring the case to D.C., which is good.
