Jason A. Cade joined the University of Georgia School of Law faculty in 2013 and was promoted to associate professor in 2017 and was awarded tenure in 2018. He teaches Immigration Law and directs the school’s Community Health Law Partnership (Community HeLP) Clinic, in which law students partner with local medical providers to help low-income persons in Athens address health-harming legal needs, including immigration, public benefits and disability rights. Before coming to UGA, Cade served as an acting assistant professor at the New York University School of Law, where he taught in the Lawyering Program from 2010 to 2013 and assisted in the Immigrant Rights Clinic.
Cade’s scholarship explores intersections between immigration enforcement and criminal law, the role of prosecutorial discretion in the modern immigration system, and judicial review of deportation procedures. His most recent work is forthcoming in the Northwestern University Law Review and the Washington & Lee Law Review. Cade's prior scholarship has been published in the Fordham Law Review, the Columbia Law Review Sidebar, the NYU Law Review Online, the UC Davis Law Review and other journals.
Prior to entering academia, Cade represented noncitizens in a wide range of immigration proceedings and family court matters while working in both small firm and nonprofit settings. Cade played a central role in the expansion of New York family court guardianship jurisdiction and was lead counsel or amicus on several state court appeals concerning immigrant juveniles. Following law school, he clerked for U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge Steven M. Gold in the Eastern District of New York and was a Skadden Public Interest Fellow at The Door.
Cade earned his undergraduate degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and his law degree magna cum laude from Brooklyn Law School, where he was executive articles editor of the Brooklyn Law Review, a Jerome Prince Scholar and an Edward V. Sparer Public Interest Fellow.
