Screen Shot 2021-02-25 at 12.59.52 PM

Kala Fryman, a 4E University of Baltimore Law student who has long been active in immigration law and policy, is taking part in the UB's Legal Data and Design Clinic, where she produced this "SCOTUS map" linking the 1943 Hirabayashi v U.S. decision (holding that President Roosevelt’s executive orders enacting curfews for individuals of Japanese descent living in the United States following the Pearl Harbor attack were constitutional) to the 2020 DACA decision (DHS v. Regents of Univ. of California).

You can find background on the SCOTUS visualization project here, and about the Legal Data and Design Clinic here.
