Edward M. Bernstein & Assoc. Donates $250k, Launches UNLV Immigration Clinic’s Children’s Rights Program

January 19, 2017

From Dean Dan Hamilton: 

We kick off the new year with some exciting news in the Thomas & Mack Legal Clinic. We are proud to announce the creation of the Edward M. Bernstein & Associates Immigration Clinic Children’s Rights Program. Edward M. Bernstein & Associates is donating $250,000 to enable the law school to represent unaccompanied immigrant children in Nevada, as part of Boyd's Immigration Clinic. The children represented by this Program are fleeing some of the most dangerous parts of the world. We are very grateful for members of the legal community, and thank Ed and Claudia Bernstein, who recognize this issue and are motivated to take action. For more on the history of this Program, and the generous gift from Edward M. Bernstein & Associates, please see the recent write up on Desert Companion’s blog.
