Rose Cahn is one of the chief advocates and educators in the field of post-conviction relief for immigrants.  She joined the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights of the San Francisco Bay Area in 2014 as a Senior Soros Justice Fellow to launch the country’s first pro bono post-conviction relief project for noncitizens.  There she works closely with legal reentry services providers throughout California to eliminate the immigration consequences of criminal convictions by the use of criminal record remedies.  Rose also engages in community outreach and education, policy advocacy, and impact litigation to promote reforms in the field of criminal and immigration law.  Prior to joining the Lawyers’ Committee, she worked at the Law Office of Norton Tooby, where she litigated hundreds of post-conviction relief cases in federal and state courts and authored and edited numerous treaties, including California Post-Conviction Relief for Immigrants, along with nationally circulated criminal-immigration law practice advisories and articles.  Rose clerked for the Hon. Warren J. Ferguson on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.  She received her JD cum laude from New York University School of Law where she was a Root-Tilden-Kern scholar.
