Sara Ehsani-Nia is a 3L at UC Davis School of the Law with a focus on immigration law and direct service legal work. Before law school, Sara worked in the Obama administration, for the former senior domestic policy advisor to President Obama, as well as on both the 2008 and 2012 Obama Campaigns. She earned her Bachelors' degree from the University of Pennsylvania, where she studied American History and Modern Middle East Studies, and authored a honors thesis on US-Iranian relations which was published in the Penn History Review. In law school, Sara was the student director of the Workers' Rights Clinic, Community Outreach Director of La Raza, and member of the Immigration Law Clinic. After working in the Immigration Law Clinic, Sara became aware of a disconnect between medical providers, and public interest immigration attorneys, who both seek to support immigrants. Sara helped found this club with the aim of strengthening ties between physicians and attorneys to better holistically assist populations in need.
