Rebecca Scholtz joined St. Thomas law school in 2017 as a faculty fellow working in the school's Legal Services Clinic focusing on immigration. As a staff attorney with the Catholic Legal Immigration Network's new Defending Vulnerable Populations project, she integrates law students into her work developing and conducting training curricula, analyzing legal issues, providing technical assistance, and establishing resources as part of an effort to increase the number of nonprofit agency staff capable of and equipped to represent immigrants in removal proceedings. The goal of the Defending Vulnerable Populations project is to respond to urgent circumstances and prepare for additional policy measures hurting immigrant families. Scholtz also assists the St. Thomas immigration clinics.

Prior to joining the Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Scholtz worked with Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid's Immigration Law Project, first as a Liman Fellow and then as a staff attorney. Her work at MMLA focused on representation of unaccompanied children, and she also provided training, technical assistance, pro bono program development and advocacy on children's immigration issues. She has served as an adjunct associate professor at the University of Minnesota Law School's Federal Immigration Litigation Clinic (2015-2017).

Scholtz received her J.D. from Yale Law School and was a judicial clerk for the Honorable Diana Murphy on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. Prior to law school, she served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Costa Rica.
