LAW 2501 - Immigration Clinic Practicum


Students in the Immigration Clinic Practicum represent clients on various immigration applications, including naturalization, adjustment, and family petitions. As a prerequisite, all of the students in the Immigration Clinic Practicum must take Immigration Law. Additionally, students must attend a one-half day training at the beginning of the semester.   Students are assigned to assist clients in preparing and filing immigration applications and to represent clients at immigration hearings or interviews before the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Students engage in fact gathering and legal research to determine clients’ eligibility for relief, counsel clients on whether and how to move forward with their applications, prepare the applications, gather the necessary supporting documentation, and ultimately prepare clients to give testimony in front of immigration hearing officers. Instructor permission is required to register for the course.
