32nd Annual Lawyer of the Americas Banquet to Honor Immigration Advocate Cheryl Little, JD '85


Annual Lawyer of the Americas Banquet

The 32nd Annual Lawyer of the Americas Banquet, hosted by the University of Miami Inter-American Law Review will honor Cheryl Little, J.D. '85 on Thursday, April 3rd at the Intercontinental Hotel.

Little has been a tireless advocate for immigrant rights for over two decades and has established herself as one of this country’s leading experts in the immigration field. Little’s extensive involvement in immigration dates from 1985 when, upon her graduation from law school with honors, she began working at the Haitian Refugee Center.

In January 1996, she co-founded the Florida Immigrant Advocacy Center, Inc. (FIAC), now Americans for Immigrant Justice (AI Justice), and serves as its Executive Director. She has received numerous honors and awards for her work, including the 2008 Morris Dees Justice Award, and was named “Person of the Week” by ABC.

Miami Law’s Inter-American Law Review (IALR) is devoted to providing a forum through which legal scholars, practitioners, and students discuss major international and inter-American legal and legally related developments. IALR is recognized as the only student-run periodical to focus solely on legal issues that directly affect Latin America and the Caribbean. With the continuing emergence of Miami as a center of international trade, finance, and law, the focus of IALR becomes increasingly important and relevant to the surrounding environs.

The cocktail reception begins at 6:30 PM followed by dinner at 7:30 PM.

To attend, RSVP by Friday, March 28th.

Ticket prices are $100 per person, $1,000 for table of 10; Sponsors (with recognition in program) $250 per person, $2500 for table of 10; and Benefactor (with recognition in program) $500 per person, $5,000 for table of 10.
