Jason Parkin joined the tenure-track faculty of Pace Law School in August, 2012. Professor Parkin will co-teach the Immigration Justice Clinic during the 2012-2013 academic year. In future years, he will teach other clinical courses offered through Pace’s John Jay Legal Services, an umbrella organization that provides representation to individuals who would not otherwise be able to obtain legal assistance.
Prior to joining the Pace faculty, Professor Parkin was a Robert M. Cover Clinical Teaching Fellow at Yale Law School, where he co-taught the Legal Services for Immigrant Communities Clinic, a community lawyering clinic that provides 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, immigration law, administrative law, public law remedies, and law and social change.
