The University of Arkansas has announced that associate professor of law Elizabeth Young has been appointed as a judge in the San Francisco Immigration Court by the U.S. Department of Justice Executive Office for Immigration Review.
Young was appointed as a judge, along with 14 other new
judges in courts across the U.S., by Attorney General Loretta Lynch. Michael McGoings, acting chief immigration judge, presided over the
swearing-in of Young at a ceremony held Sept. 23 in Washington, D.C.
"We welcome these 15 appointees to the immigration
judge corps," McGoings said. "With these appointments, EOIR now has
291 immigration judges, setting a new all-time high for our immigration judge
corps and further strengthening our efforts to address the agency's pending
caseload of more than 500,000."
Young has been a member of the faculty at Arkansas’ school
of law since 2008.
"We are proud of Professor Young's many accomplishments
and celebrate this prestigious appointment," University of Arkansas School of Law Dean Stacy Leeds said. "Her work has been very impactful for
the state and has greatly enriched the experiences of students that worked
under her supervision."
