Welcoming Sarah Rogerson

It's our great pleasure to welcome Sarah Rogerson (left) as an IntLawGrrls contributor.
Sarah is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Law at Albany Law School, where she directs the Family Violence Litigation Clinic, in which students handle cases involving child custody and support, family offense petitions, and orders of protection, including those for immigrant women and children.
In addition to her J.D., Sarah holds a Master's Degree in Diplomacy and International Relations and a LL.M. with a concentration in international law from Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law. Prior to joining the Albany Law School faculty, Sarah completed a Teaching Fellowship at Baltimore Law School in the Immigrant Rights Clinic. She also directed an asylum law program at a non-profit in Dallas, Texas and worked in private legal practice.
Sarah's scholarship focuses on the intersections of family law, immigration law and international law. In her introductory post below, Sarah discusses the impact of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights decision in Atala v. Chile on future domestic family law decisions involving issues that implicate prevailing social prejudices.
Heartfelt welcome!
