Professor Lee writes at the intersection of administrative law and immigration law. He is particularly interested in the ways in which enforcement realities constrain immigration law and policy across a variety of contexts and institutions.
Recent projects have examined the pathologies associated with regulating employers for immigration and labor law violations, the administrative challenges of coordinating the enforcement efforts by multiple agencies, and the role that criminal defense lawyers play in mediating the immigration-related information flowing between the criminal justice and immigration systems. His work has been published in the Stanford Law Review, the Arizona Law Review, and the California Law Review.
Professor Lee received his B.A. from Stanford University, his M.A. in Asian American Studies from UCLA, and his J.D. from UC Berkeley School of Law. A former Fulbright Fellow, Professor Lee worked at Skadden, Arps, clerked for Judge Mary Schroeder on the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, and completed a fellowship at Stanford Law School before joining the UCI Law faculty.
