Join us for a conversation about civil rights and economic justice with Assistant Professor of Law at Harvard Law School Nikolas Bowie ’14 and Oren Nimni, a Civil Rights Fellow at Lawyers for Civil Rights Boston. Oren’s legal practice focuses on cutting-edge constitutional litigation on behalf of people of color and immigrants. Oren is currently litigating the first lawsuit filed in the country against the Trump Administration to save TPS on behalf of Haitian, Honduran and Salvadoran immigrants. He is also litigating the first lawsuit filed in the country to block federal officials from conducting immigration arrests in state courthouses. Oren employs a community lawyering model. He is deeply embedded in the community, and regularly advises grassroots organizations on policy and legal matters.

Co-sponsored by the National Lawyers Guild – HLS Chapter.
