Former judge Shira Scheindlin may have left the bench at the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, but she's certainly not retired. Scheindlin is of counsel in the New York office of Stroock & Stroock & Lavan, and she serves as an arbitrator and mediator at JAMS. But she's front and center again-launching a new organization to help people caught in the web of President Donald Trump's attempts to deport immigrants.

The American Immigrant Representation Project (AIRP) has been formed, in partnership with the American Immigration Council, "to address the new priorities and other deportation issues." Ballard Spahr partner Marjorie Peerce is one of five people involved with launching this project.
