Jason Parkin joined the Pace Law School faculty in 2012.  Professor Parkin is the founder and director of the Neighborhood Justice Clinic, a clinic that represents individuals and organizations in both litigation and non-litigation matters related to workers’ rights and other issues affecting low-income communities in Westchester County.  Previously, during the 2012-2013 academic year, Professor Parkin co-directed the Immigration Justice Clinic.

Prior to joining the Pace faculty, Professor Parkin was a Robert M. Cover Fellow and Clinical Lecturer in Law at Yale Law School, where he co-taught the Legal Services for Immigrant Communities Clinic, a community lawyering clinic that provides a wide range of civil legal services to New Haven’s immigrant communities.  Professor Parkin is a former senior staff attorney in the New York Legal Assistance Group’s Special Litigation Unit, where he primarily litigated class actions challenging systemic violations of low-income New Yorkers’ rights to various government benefits and services, with a focus on enforcing the rights of immigrants and low-wage workers.  Following law school, he clerked for Judge Robert P. Patterson, Jr. of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, and Judge Julio M. Fuentes of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

Professor Parkin’s teaching and scholarship focus on poverty law, administrative law, immigration law, public law remedies, and law and social change.
