The Immigration Clinic is a two-semester or fall-only clinic option that provides students with an opportunity to represent clients in immigration cases.

How Cases Are Assigned and Handled

The faculty supervisor assigns cases to students who work in teams of two or three, depending on the case or project, and consult with each other before and during weekly team meetings with their faculty supervisor. Students prepare claims and advocate on behalf of immigrant clients, including:

  • refugees applying for asylum.
  • battered immigrants applying for VAWA relief.
  • immigrants eligible for U (crime victim) Visas.
  • immigrants eligible for T (trafficking) Visas.
  • immigrants with claims to U.S. citizenship.
  • other claims for permanent residency status.

There may be opportunities for ancillary state court representation related to immigration cases, depending on clients' needs.
