Immigration Clinic

Registration & Requirements

Students in the Immigration Clinic represent low-income undocumented immigrants, including those who are seeking asylum or who have been the victims of domestic or sexual violence or of other crimes.

For 2017-2018, the Immigration Clinic has both a full year or a fall semester only option.  Each semester is 4 credits (pass/fail).

Registration for the Immigration Clinic is limited to third-year students, selected by a lottery. A lottery registration meeting for Externship and Clinical Programs is held approximately one month into the spring semester of students’ 2nd year. Notices are posted throughout the Law School and emailed to the 2nd year student listserv. After the lottery registration meeting, students are given an opportunity to register for their program preferences online. Students interested in the Immigration Clinic may prioritize

Please note: Students may not enroll in any externship programs while enrolled in the Immigration Clinic.

Requirements Immigration Clinic students meet weekly at a regularly scheduled class time to discuss assigned readings and to review cases. Students work in teams and have weekly team meetings with their faculty supervisor. All students enrolled in the Immigration Clinic must attend the mandatory Clinic Intensive Weekend held near the beginning of the fall semester.

While there are no prerequisites, it is highly recommended that students have taken or are currently taking Immigration law, International Law, Domestic Violence Law, International Human Rights Law, Trial Advocacy, and Evidence.
