Nadia Anguiano-Wehde ’17
- Assistant Visiting Professor of Clinical Law
Nadia Anguiano-Wehde ‘17 joined the law school’s James H. Binger Center for New Americans in September 2019 as an Immigration Advocacy Fellow. Nadia’s fellowship focuses on providing comprehensive legal representation to detained noncitizens, combining individual representation, impact litigation, and grassroots advocacy. As a law student, Nadia spent two years with the Center’s Federal Immigration Litigation Clinic, representing immigrants and refugees before the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, immigration courts, and U.S. Courts of Appeals. During this time, she also represented noncitizens in conjunction with attorneys in the Immigration Unit at Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid and the National Immigrant Justice Center in Chicago. In recognition of her commitment to public service and defending the rights of immigrants and refugees, Nadia was awarded the Excellence in Public Service Award by her law school graduating class and the University of Minnesota Human Rights Law Award by the law school’s Human Rights Center.
Before rejoining the Center as a fellow, Nadia clerked for judges on the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals and the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota. Prior to attending law school, she worked as a mechanical design and integration engineer for six years.
