Personal profile

Prior to joining the Allard School of Law, Asha held a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Toronto, Faculty of Law. Before commencing her graduate studies, she worked in a variety of legal capacities, including as a law clerk for the Court of Appeal for Ontario, as an aspiring civil litigator in Toronto, and as an international investment lawyer. 


Professor Kaushal’s research examines the ways in which law encounters diversity and difference across a range of legal settings. Her present focus is on immigration law and its adjacent fields, although she continues to explore how conceptions of community and belonging relate to legal orders more generally. 


Asha supervises graduate students in subjects related to her research and teaching interests. She is affiliated with UBC Migration, a UBC Research Excellence Cluster.
