Washington & Lee law professor David Baluarte will speak at the Harvard Kennedy School on Tuesday, April 8, 2014. Professor Baluarte will participate in a panel discussion titled “Migrant Descendants in the Dominican Republic, Nationals or Foreigners?” with Jacqueline Bhabha and Bridget Wooding. The panel will address the impact of recent constitutional law reform on Sept 26, 2013, in the Dominican Republic that has effectively removed the right to nationality of over 200,000 Dominicans of Haitian descent.
Professor Baluarte joined Washington and Lee as an Assistant Clinical Professor of Law in 2013. He is the Director of the Immigrant Rights Clinic. Read more about Professor Baluarte’s scholarship here.
