Georgia Law Professor Jason A. Cade secures grant to address needs of immigrants, other vulnerable communities during COVID-19 crisis

Jason A. Cade, J. Alton Hosch Associate Professor of Law and Director of the Community Health Law  Partnership Clinic here at the University of Georgia School of Law, has secured a $10,000 Flom Incubator Grant from the Skadden Foundation to address the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on immigrant families and other vulnerable communities in Athens, Georgia, and surrounding rural areas.

The grant will enable Cade and a coalition of partners to develop and launch a model for remote screening, advice, and advocacy, aimed at addressing these communities’ most pressing needs for civil legal assistance. If successful, the model could be expanded to other communities, in Georgia and elsewhere, both during and beyond the current pandemic.

Named after a late partner of the Skadden law firm, Flom Incubator Grants support novel legal projects undertaken in the public interest by former Skadden Fellows – like Professor Cade, who, before joining the Georgia Law faculty, was a Skadden Public Interest Fellow at The Door, a New York-based nonprofit dedicated to the development of young people.
