LAW 5801 - Asylum Clinic

Students in the Asylum Clinic represent clients who are fleeing from other countries because of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group. Supervised by the Clinic’s instructor, students represent their clients in hearings before asylum officers, Immigration Court proceedings, and appeals to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. These cases require extensive investigation of country conditions, tracking down of key witnesses, and trial preparation. Any student interested in practicing immigration, human rights or international law should seriously consider this Clinical offering.

Prerequisites & Notes
Registration by permission of the professor. Immigration Law, while not a prerequisite, would be helpful.

Credits: 6
