Juan earned his B.A. from Yale University and his J.D. from New York University School of Law. During his time in law school Juan interned with the Immigrant Defense Project in New York City and the Pima County Public Defenders office in Tucson, Ariz. He also spent the summer of 2015 interning with the ACLU of Southern California’s National Security and Immigrant Rights Project.
