In the spring of 2009, the Southern Illinois University School of Law welcomed Chris Nugent to the campus to deliver the 2009 Hiram H. Lesar Distinguished Lecture. A Senior Counsel with the Community Services Team of Holland & Knight LLP in Washington, D.C., Nugent is responsible for developing cutting-edge immigration-related pro-bono projects and trainings for firm offices and undertaking complex domestic and international casework involving immigration and public policy.
On this InFocus, SIU School of Law Associate Professor Cindy Buys speaks with Nugent about his recent work with "The List Project," a partnership of law firms that offer pro-bono representation for Iraqis who no longer feel safe in their own country after working for American interests.
