Kate Evans Associate Professor


Kate Evans joined the University of Idaho College of Law in 2016 after completing a three-year teaching fellowship at the University of Minnesota Law School’s Center for New Americans. There she supervised students in their successful representation of immigrant clients before the immigration courts, the Board of Immigration Appeals, the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota, the U.S. Courts of Appeals, and the U.S. Supreme Court. Evans' advocacy, in partnership with other clinical faculty, students, and the ACLU of Minnesota, on behalf of a refugee detained by immigration officials for over two years was featured in the New Yorker.  Before her teaching fellowship, Kate had a private immigration practice focusing on appellate litigation. Kate clerked on the Minnesota Court of Appeals and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. She received her J.D. in 2009 from New York University School of Law where she received a Root-Tilden-Kern scholarship for public interest and was inducted into the Order of the Coif.  Before entering law school, Kate worked for Doctors Without Borders and was stationed in Arua, Uganda and Guatemala City.  She earned her B.A. in International Development Studies, magna cum laude, from Brown University. Kate directs the Immigration Clinic and teaches immigration law.
