The UNLV Immigration Clinic marries the Boyd School of Law's commitment to community service with our students' desire to learn by doing.
In the Immigration Clinic, Boyd students can begin working with real world clients from their first weeks in law school. Volunteer law students, including 1Ls, can conduct intake interviews with immigrant clients both at the clinic and through the Self-Help Center at the Las Vegas Immigration Court.
Student attorneys in the clinic, typically 3Ls, work under faculty supervision and can perform every role of a licensed attorney. Immigration Clinic students have tried torture cases in Immigration Court, represented clients before the federal Court of Appeals, testified before the Nevada legislature, accompanied clients to asylum interviews in California, and appeared on behalf of unaccompanied children in family courts.
