Professor Lee received his B.A. from Stanford University, his M.A. from UCLA, and his J.D. from UC Berkeley School of Law. A former Fulbright Fellow, Professor Lee began his legal career at Skadden, Arps, in the Mass Torts and Insurance Litigation Group.  After that, he clerked for Judge Mary Schroeder on the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, and then completed a fellowship at Stanford Law School before joining the UCI Law faculty. Professor Lee writes at the intersection of administrative law and immigration law.
