Registration for the Immigration Clinic is limited to third-year students. A lottery registration meeting for Externship and Clinical Programs is held approximately one month into the spring semester of your 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.
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 review cases and projects. Students will 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 Immigration law, International Law, International Human Rights Law, Trial Advocacy and Evidence.
The Immigration Clinic is 4 credits in the Fall (pass/fail) and 4 credits in the Spring (pass/fail).
