David A. Martin
Warner-Booker Distinguished Professor of International Law
University of Virginia School of Law

Martin is one of the nation's leading experts in immigration and international law. He joined the faculty of the University of Virginia School of Law in 1980, after serving two years as special assistant to the assistant secretary for human rights and humanitarian affairs at the State Department. From 2009 to January 2011 he took leave to serve as deputy general counsel for the Department of Homeland Security, and from 1995 to 1998 he served as general counsel of the Immigration and Naturalization Service. He has twice served as a consultant to the Administrative Conference of the United States, preparing studies and recommendations on federal migrant worker assistance programs and on reforms to political asylum adjudication procedures. In 1993 he undertook a consultancy for the Department of Justice that led to major reforms of the U.S. political asylum adjudication system. In 2003–2004 he was asked by the State Department to provide a comprehensive study of the U.S. overseas refugee admissions program, leading to recommendations for reform of that system.
