Asylum and Immigration Law Clinic

The Asylum and Immigration Law Clinic provides students with the opportunity to represent individual clients seeking immigration benefits, including, but not limited to, asylum, withholding of removal, relief under the Convention Against Torture, U and T visas for victims of trafficking and other crimes, relief under the Violence Against Women Act, Special Immigrant Juvenile visas and Temporary Protected Status, as well as help clients who obtain such relief with family reunification, adjustment of status and, eventually, naturalization.

The clinic has represented clients from countries around the world, including Burundi, Cameroon, Colombia, Cote D'Ivoire, Cuba, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Egypt, Estonia, Kenya, Malaysia, Mexico, Nigeria, Palestine, Rwanda, Somalia and Uganda.

Students represent indigent or low-income clients who could not otherwise afford legal assistance and will have the opportunity to work on a wide variety of immigration cases and gain experience working with federal agencies, such as the Department of Homeland Security and Federal Immigration Courts. Students in this clinic also will have the opportunity to be involved with local community outreach and informational programs.
