Juliet Stumpf’s scholarship explores the intersections between immigration law and other substantive areas of law including criminal law, constitutional law, civil rights, and employment law. Her current research is interdisciplinary, examining the insights that psychological and sociological research bring to the centrality of procedure and membership theory in immigration law. Before joining the Lewis & Clark Law School faculty in 2005, Stumpf served as Acting Assistant Professor in the Lawyering Program at New York University School of Law. Previously, she clerked for Judge Richard A. Paez on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, and served as a Senior Trial Attorney in the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department where she litigated employment discrimination claims and advocated for the civil rights of immigrants and U.S. citizens of color. She practiced for several years with the law firm of Morrison and Foerster in Palo Alto, California and Washington, D.C.
