Liz Bradley

Visiting Practice Assistant Professor of Law

Professor Liz Bradley co-teaches the Transnational Legal Clinic at the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School. Prior to joining the faculty at Penn Law, Professor Bradley worked with the Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project representing immigrants held in large detention centers near the U.S-Mexico border. She has given legal orientations and pro se counseling to thousands of detained immigrants and served as appointed counsel for individuals with severe mental disabilities deemed incompetent to represent themselves in immigration court. She has lived and worked in North America, Central America and Europe, most recently providing pro bono legal assistance to asylum seekers in Greek refugee camps.

Professor Bradley’s areas of expertise include immigration detention, due process in immigration court, asylum, withholding of removal, and Convention Against Torture claims, and immigration consequences of criminal convictions. Her most recent article, Virtually Incredible: Rethinking Deference to Demeanor When Assessing Credibility in Asylum Cases Conducted by Video Teleconference, explores the law and social science behind demeanor-based credibility determinations and the impact of video teleconferencing on the adjudication of claims for humanitarian protections.
