Anjana Malhotra, associate professor in the UB Law School, has been named to Lawyers of Color’s “50 Under 50” list, a comprehensive catalog of the most influential minority law professors 50 years of age or younger. The list will be released April 7 in the publication’s Law School Diversity Issue.

Malhotra’s scholarship centers on issues in immigration law, constitutional law and international human rights, with a particular focus on substantive theories of equality and access to justice.

Before joining the UB Law faculty, Malhotra taught at the Seattle University School of Law as the inaugural Fred T. Korematsu Clinical Fellow, where she developed and co-taught the Civil Rights Amicus and Impact Litigation Clinic. A magna cum laude graduate of Duke University, she majored in anthropology and served as a university representative to the 1995 NGO Forum on Women in Beijing. Malhotra went on to earn her JD cum laude from New York University School of Law, where she was a Root-Tilden-Kern Public Interest Scholar.

Lawyers of Color (LOC) was founded as On Being A Black Lawyer, but now also produces publications for current and future lawyers of South Asian-American, Pacific Asian-American, Hispanic and Native-American descent. LOC has been recognized by the American Bar Association, National Black Law Students Association and National Association of Black Journalists.
