Biography

Zafar Shah is an attorney in the Human Right to Housing Project. Prior to joining Public Justice Center in 2011, he investigated employment, housing, and language access discrimination cases at the District of Columbia Office of Human Rights. His prior work involved transnational workers’ rights at Centro de los Derechos del Migrante and immigrant workers’ rights at Mississippi Immigrants Rights Alliance.

In 2008 Zafar graduated with exceptional service honors from the American University Washington College of Law, where he was a Public Interest/Public Service Scholar and worked two semesters in the International Human Rights Law Clinic. He also interned for Legal Aid Society of New York, Farmworker Justice, CASA of Maryland, and Center for Justice and International Law. He was a recipient of the South Asian Bar Association of New York Public Interest Fellowship and the National Lawyers Guild’s Haywood Burns Memorial Fellow for Social and Economic Justice.

Zafar currently serves on the Section Council for the Delivery of Legal Services Section of the Maryland State Bar Association and is co-chair of the Legal Impact Network Housing Working Group. From 2007 to 2009 Zafar co-chaired the National Lawyers Guild’s United People of Color Caucus. He also served as a volunteer attorney with Kids In Need of Defense from 2010 to 2017.

A Baltimore City resident since 2006, Zafar found the perfect job at PJC, where he brings direct client services, high impact litigation strategies, community partnerships, and legislative advocacy into a single focus on the empowerment of politically and socially marginalized communities. He holds a range of interests outside his work on housing and tenants’ rights: energy equity, community organizing, digital divide and technology literacy, and diversity in the legal profession. He was raised in north Texas and received his B.A. with special honors in 2003 from the University of Texas at Austin.
