Leslye Orloff is director of the National Immigrant Women’s Advocacy Project
(NIWAP) at American University Washington College of Law. NIWAP advocates for
laws, policies and practices that enhance legal options for immigrant women and
immigrant victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking.
Orloff’s 30-year career includes working collaboratively with experts across the
country to develop and implement immigration relief, public benefits access and
family law protections for immigrant women, children and survivors. She was a
co-founder and co-chair of the National Network to End Violence Against
Immigrant Women and has written local and national training curricula, manuals
and story collections bringing immigrant women’s voices to national policy makers.
Orloff’s work on behalf of immigrant women has received national recognition,
including the 2007 Sheila Wellstone Award, awarded to the National Network
to End Violence Against Immigrant Women; the 2007 annual Rosalynn B. Bell
Award, presented by the Women’s Law Center of Maryland; a Harvard Law School
Wasserstein Public Interest Law Fellowship in 2002; and a Kellogg National
Leadership Fellowship in 1994.
The Daynard Public Interest
Visiting Fellows Program
brings two distinguished public
interest practitioners to campus
each academic year for a threeday visit. The fellows serve as role
models for students, demonstrating
how legal skills can be used
effectively and creatively to
make the world a better place.
This vibrant program was
established in 2004 through
the generosity of Professor
Richard A. Daynard, president
of the law school’s Public Health
Advocacy Institute, and his wife,
Carol Iskols Daynard.
