Daria Fisher Page is a Visiting Associate Professor and the Director of the Community Justice Project. Her research and teaching interests include access to justice, administrative law and proceedings, immigration law, and clinical pedagogy. She received a J.D. from the University of Michigan Law School, an L.L.M. from Georgetown University Law Center, and a B.A. from Yale University, where she studied architectural history and theory. At the University of Michigan Law School, she was a Clara Belfield and Henry Bates Fellow and received the Jane L. Mixer Award for the Advancement of Social Justice.
In the Community Justice Project, where she was previously a Clinical Teaching Fellow, Professor Fisher Page supervises students in a clinical program designed to give them experience with a range of matters and diverse areas of the law. Students represent individual clients in a litigation matter, currently unemployment insurance appeals before the Office of Administrative Hearings, and represent nonprofit organizations in matters including the design of advocacy campaigns, legislative and policy drafting, community organizing, and strategic planning.
Before coming to Georgetown, Professor Fisher Page practiced for nearly a decade, focusing on immigration and refugee law, juvenile law, and human rights, both domestically and internationally, with an expertise in the provision of legal services to trauma survivors. Most recently, she was the Supervising Attorney of the Washington, D.C. office of Kids in Need of Defense (KIND). She was also a Senior Staff Attorney at the Tahirih Justice Center, a Trial Attorney at the Department of Justice, and the head of the unaccompanied minors’ team at Africa Middle East Refugee Assistance (AMERA). Professor Fisher Page taught courses on comparative refugee law and strategic human rights litigation at the Universidad San Francisco de Quito. During that time, she also worked on the legal team representing the plaintiffs in Aguinda v. ChevronTexaco, an environmental class action seeking damages for oil contamination in the Ecuadorian Amazon.
