Founder and Managing Partner at Kaur Law PC
A graduate of Western Michigan University’s Cooley Law School, Ruby Kaur compassionately advocates for her clients. She hadn’t always planned on the legal profession. “Initially, I wanted to go into neuroscience research,” she says. But when something still felt missing after taking life science classes, Kaur was inspired by her grandfather to change direction. “I shadowed with a local attorney and volunteered at a federal legal aid near campus at the Virginia Commonwealth University ,” she says. “I was super fascinated seeing health and law together in one field and how it made a difference in people’s lives.” Now, Kaur works on the frontlines of high-profile immigration cases.
In 2016 and 2017, she represented two Iraqi nationals facing imminent deportation. Last year, she worked to mobilize civil rights groups and nonprofits in support of Sikh detainees on hunger strike in protest of Immigrations and Customs Enforcement detention conditions in El Paso who were being fed against their will. Afterward, nearly 50 members of Congress signed a letter to the Department of Homeland Security demanding an investigation into ICE’s use of force-feeding.
She currently serves as a Vice Chair for Immigration and Nationality Law Committee, American Bar Association – Young Lawyer Division and also been volunteering with the Michigan Indian Community Service collective to address legal needs and complications resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.
She also serves on the law committee of Sikh Coalition and is an immigration attorney for India Hub located downtown, Illinois.
