Harvard Law School Case Studies recently published a new case study that focused on the work of HIRC’s Assistant Director Sabrineh Ardalan. The case study has students play various roles in a legislative simulation before the House Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security. You can download a free copy here.

When asked why she chose to do this simulation, Professor Ardalan said: “I wanted the students in my immigration law class to engage with the complex legal issues presented by the current debate over sanctuary policies and was eager to facilitate a productive debate.”

She also stressed the importance of involving advocates who had participated in Congressional hearings. For her simulation, she had lawyers JJ Rosenbaum, formerly the Legal Director with the New Orleans Workers’ Center for Racial Justice, and Avideh Moussavian, Senior Policy Attorney with the National Immigration Law Center.
