WASHINGTON, DC - The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) will recognize Sheila Starkey Hahn, of Memphis, Tennessee, with the 2018 Michael Maggio Memorial Pro Bono Award for outstanding efforts in providing pro bono representation in the immigration field. The award will be presented this week during AILA’s Annual Conference in San Francisco.
Ms. Starkey Hahn graduated from the University of Buffalo with a double major in English Literature and Spanish. She received her Juris Doctor, Cum Laude, from the University of Minnesota Law School, where she was the student director of the Refugee Law Clinic.
At her solo practice in Memphis, Tennessee, Ms. Starkey Hahn balances business immigration with representing asylum applicants before the Immigration Court.
She is currently the Chair of AILA’s National Pro Bono Committee and the Advocacy Chair for AILA’s MidSouth Chapter, having previously served as the Treasurer of the AILA DC Chapter, Ambassador to the American Immigration Council (AIC), DC Chapter Pro Bono Liaison, Citizenship Day Chair, and member of the AIC Immigrant Achievement Awards Committee.
Ms. Starkey Hahn has lectured on topics of immigration law at universities, embassies, international organizations, and AILA conferences, and is the author of numerous articles on a variety of topics in immigration law. She has traveled to Artesia, New Mexico; Dilley, Texas; and Karnes, Texas, to provide pro bono representation to detained women and children seeking asylum.
