Professors Jennifer Koh and Sabrina Rivera recently filed an amicus brief on behalf of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) Amicus Committee in Matter of S-C-, a case pending before the Board of Immigration Appeals.

The brief addressed the statutory eligibility requirements for a lawful permanent resident to seek relief from deportation under former section 212(c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act in light of prior Board and Supreme Court precedent. AILA is the largest national association of immigration lawyers and has more than 14,000 members throughout the United States.
