2. UNIVERSIDAD DEL VALLE IN SEARCH OF FULBRIGHT VISITING PROFESSORS IN SOCIAL SCIENCES

UVG is looking for Fulbright visiting professors in Social Sciences.

UVG has a long tradition of serving as a host institution for Fulbright Professors and Researchers.  Usually, visiting fellows at UVG teach a semester-long class in our Anthropology & Sociology, Archaeology or History Departments.  They also work closely with our students, who work as their research assistants during fieldwork and other forms of collaboration.  UVG provides institutional support, including access to a wide network of national professors and researchers.  In order to extend a letter of support, we need a draft proposal, including methodological and ethical considerations, which will be submitted to our Ethics Committee.  This Committee usually takes three to four weeks to evaluate a proposal.

3. ATTORNEY LOOKING FOR EXPERT WITNESS TESTIMONY ON GUATEMALA GENERAL CONDITIONS


I am an immigration attorney in Baltimore, Maryland. I have a client from Guatemala who is in deportation proceedings. He is a candidate for a green card through a form of relief known as cancellation of removal. I need an expert assessment of what would happen to him and his family in two situations: 1) if were deported to Guatemala and his family remained in the US or 2) if he were deported and his family came with him to Guatemala. The assessment would consider the family's loss of educational opportunities, loss of healthcare, loss of employment opportunities, any financial impacts, and general issues surrounding personal security in Guatemala.
A 2-3 page report would need to be generated. In-court testimony is generally not required. My client's hearing is currently scheduled for February 18, 2016.

My client can pay for your services. If you are interested, please let me know.
Sincerely,
