The Immigration Law Clinic offers several programs and projects in which students can sharpen their lawyering skills and learn firsthand about immigration law and policy.
The Immigration Litigation Clinic litigates on behalf of immigrants facing removal proceedings in immigration court.
The King Hall Immigration Detention Project provides legal assistance to immigration detainees and litigates detention issues of national impact in immigration court and at the appellate level. The project provides counsel to public defenders so that they may render effective assistance of counsel in accordance with their duties under the U.S. Supreme Court’s Padilla v. Kentucky decision.
The Childhood Arrivals Project provides legal support and representation to unaccompanied immigrant minors and immigrants eligible for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). Through the Immigration Law Clinic’s efforts, thousands of DACA-eligible immigrants have received critical information about the DACA program, and many have received direct assistance in preparing their DACA applications.
The Immigrant Integration and Citizenship Project provides education, outreach, and legal services to immigrants seeking to integrate and participate in civic and political society.
