Professor Emerita Julie Davies is a part-time staff attorney in the Immigration Clinic. After working as a full-time professor at McGeorge for over 30 years teaching courses such as Torts, Civil Rights Litigation, Negotiation and Settlement, and working in the Community Services Legal Clinic, Professor Davies decided to transition to the Immigration Clinic. The Immigration Clinic presents wonderful opportunities for Professor Davies to bring together her various skills and interests.

As a Spanish major at UCLA, and as the Director and a Professor in the law school’s Inter-American program in Guatemala, Professor Davies loves being able to use Spanish to help clients and to bring to bear her knowledge of Central America. Her most recent scholarship prior to the transition focused on customary or indigenous law and many of the Clinic’s clients come from these indigenous communities. It is a joy and an honor to be able to use these skills to help the Clinic’s clients, most of whom have suffered tremendous hardships in life.
