Ingrid Eagly is an Assistant Professor of Law at the UCLA School of Law. A graduate of Princeton University and Harvard Law School, Professor Eagly clerked for the Honorable David Coar of the United States District Court in Chicago. Immediately prior to joining the faculty at UCLA, Eagly served as a trial attorney for the Office of the Federal Public Defender in Los Angeles. She is also the recipient of a Skadden Fellowship and a Soros Criminal Justice Fellowship. At UCLA, Eagly teaches Evidence and directs the Criminal Defense Clinic. She also serves as an affiliated faculty member of the Epstein Program in Public Interest Law and the UCLA Program on International Migration.
Professor Eagly’s research interests focus on the intersection between immigration law and criminal justice. Her recent articles explore the right to counsel in immigration proceedings and criminal court practices that integrate criminal prosecution with immigration enforcement. Eagly’s current project, for which she was awarded a UCLA Hellman Fellowship, analyzes the significance of increased reliance on videoconferencing to adjudicate the immigration cases of detained immigrants.
