King Hall Immigration Law Clinic Receives Justice Leadership Award
The UC Davis School of Law Immigration Law Clinic received the Justice Leadership Award from the Multi-Cultural Community Council, an organization started by Yolo County District Attorney Jeff Reisig.
The award, presented at a luncheon on September 28, honored Professor Holly Cooper and Professor Amagda Pérez, clinic co-directors, and their students, for their work in representing documented and undocumented immigrants from all over the world.
Clinic clients include those in detention, children, asylum-seekers, and others, and the clinic offers advice to public defenders representing non-citizen criminal defendants. Professor Emeritus Alan Brownstein is a member of the Council.
