Growing the Resistance: A Call to Action for Transactional Lawyers in the Era of Trump by Gowri Krishna, 7 Tennessee Journal of Race, Gender, & Social Justice 206 (2018)

Abstract

This essay is a call to action for transactional lawyers looking to support vulnerable immigrants through non-litigation means. By providing a snapshot of an especially precarious time in history for immigrants in the U.S.—the period immediately after the 2016 presidential election—the essay illustrates future areas of opportunity for transactional attorneys.

Thanks for posting the essay! I'm grateful that it's being shared broadly with the immigration prof community, as many of you have been critical to finding intersections with the transactional work. Please reach out to me if you have any thoughts/suggestions about the work described. I'm also working on a piece that explores more in depth the ethics and lawyering issues of "sanctuary lawyering."
