Jacqueline Dan graduated from Rice University and UCLA School of Law. She serves as a staff attorney with Advancing Justice-OC, where she has been practicing immigration law for more than four years. Jacqueline has also served as a judicial extern with the Immigration Court of Los Angeles, interned at the National Immigration Law Center and the Esperanza Immigrant Rights Project with Catholic Charities of Los Angeles, Inc.
Jacqueline was selected as one of the 2015 VABANC Law Foundation Fellowship recipients, where she worked with Southeast Asian immigrants challenging unlawful immigration detention or deportation. Specifically, she focused on providing services to refugees and long-term residents who face immigration consequences through the criminal justice system – an area of law that has significant need yet lacks resources as it has largely been overlooked.
