Ashley Hamill, a 2018 graduate of FSU Law, recently joined the FSU Law faculty as a clinical professor. She directs the Immigration and Farmworker Project within the Public Interest Law Center. Prior to joining FSU Law, Hamill served as a supervising attorney in Gulfcoast Legal Services' Immigration Unit, where she represented survivors of crime and human trafficking in immigration petitions before U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services and the Executive Office for Immigration Review. She also previously worked as a staff attorney with the Migrant and Immigrant Community Action Project in St. Louis, Missouri, and as a staff attorney with Florida Justice for Our Neighbors.

She also volunteered with FSU’s Center for the Advancement of Human Rights.

“I am delighted and honored to return to FSU College of Law to direct the Public Interest Law Center’s Immigration and Farmworker Law Project. I know first-hand how invaluable a clinical experience is to gaining the advocacy skills students need after graduation. I am incredibly grateful for this opportunity to inspire and guide students seeking to improve the lives of immigrants and refugees in their communities.”
