Professor Daniel I. Morales is a scholar and theorist of immigration law. His research addresses the legal problems that arise because immigration law acts on noncitizens, yet is made by and for the citizenry. His scholarship has appeared in leading law reviews, including the N.Y.U. Law Review, Indiana Law Journal, and Wake Forest Law Review. Prof. Morales joined the DePaul law faculty in 2011 and was honored with the College of Law's Excellence in Teaching Award in 2012 and the University's Spirit of Inquiry Award for research excellence in 2017. Before joining the faculty at DePaul, Professor Morales was a William H. Hastie Fellow at the University of Wisconsin Law School and clerked for both the Hon. R. Guy Cole Jr., U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit, and the Hon. Joan B. Gottschall, U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. He received his JD from Yale Law School and his BA, magna cum laude, from Williams College, where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. He has practiced law at Jenner & Block LLP and Kirkland & Ellis LLP. At DePaul, he teaches Civil Procedure, Legislation, and a seminar entitled Crimmigration.
