Henry Goldberg

Henry Goldberg is a 1L from Dallas, Texas. Before coming to Columbia Law School, he attended Vanderbilt University, graduating in May 2020, where he picked up a passion for voting rights as well as immigration policy, focusing in particular on refugee law. As a first-year student there in Fall 2016, frustrated with the school’s ineffective voter registration efforts, he researched state laws to create a spreadsheet to help his fellow students register to vote and request their absentee ballots. The online resource racked up hundreds of views, and he used it in-person to help over fifty people. Also during college, he took multiple classes on refugee law and performed research on it, earning a spot in the acknowledgments section of a forthcoming journal article. At Columbia Law, in addition to his work with ACLU-CLS, he is excited to be a part of the LaLSA Moot Court and the SIRR Presidential Team and to be helping with refugee casework through IRAP.
