Thank you, Annika, for giving your time to JAMLAC!

Annika Winans grew up in Truckee, California, where she cultivated her love for the mountains and her hometown community. She studied Political Science and Spanish at Colorado College (CC) in Colorado Springs. At CC, she spent a semester abroad at the University of Granada in Granada, Spain.

Annika wrote her senior thesis on human rights violations in immigration detention centers. After college, she spent a few years working for Vail Resorts Mountain Sports as a freeride ski instructor in the beautiful small town of Crested Butte, Colorado. Annika is now a 2L student at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, pursuing her passion for immigration law and advocacy.  She will serve in the Fall 2022 – Spring 2023 DU Immigration Law & Policy Clinical Program.

The Immigration Law and Policy Clinic (ILPC) provides legal services at the intersection of criminal and immigration law. It explores systemic problems in the immigration enforcement system, such as racial and economic bias, law enforcement and accountability, hyper-incarceration, and access to justice. She did her internship at JAMLAC for the Summer semester, and she did fantastic!
