Stoll Berne attorney Nadia Dahab was honored to be listed in the recent University of Oregon’s Oregon Quarterly “100 Ducks Who Made a Difference” list. Oregon Quarterly, the University of Oregon’s alumni and former students publication, is celebrating their 100th anniversary in 2019. In honor of the occasion, Oregon Quarterly sought nominations for alumni, students, faculty, staff, administrators, and friends of the university from 1919-present who have worked to make the world a better place.
Nadia was recognized for her work as a cooperating attorney to the ACLU of Oregon, representing the Innovation Law Lab in a lawsuit to gain and keep access to counsel for immigrant detainees at the Sheridan, Oregon federal detention center. Nadia’s pro bono work on behalf of Innovation Law Lab has helped to provide counsel for 80 immigrant men for their successful completion of asylum-screening interviews.
