Immigration Clinic

Students in the Immigration Clinic engage with immigrant communities through direct client representation and policy advocacy for vulnerable populations that are otherwise unable to obtain legal representation.  Students may represent clients in administrative proceedings, Immigration Court, and federal and state courts.  Some students may work in appellate and amici capacities, while others may engage in regulatory and legislative reform efforts.  The clinic is purposefully diverse, exposing students to the broad reach of immigration law into a vast array of legal systems and social institutions.  Immigration law presents unparalleled complexities and rich client interactions.  In problem solving with their clients, students are challenged to integrate demanding legal analysis with sophisticated community advocacy.
