Immigration Law Clinic

Law students, supervised by a law school professor or practicing attorney, spend two semesters providing legal services to needy immigrants in the South Coast area. The clinic receives client referrals from several local agencies as well as the BostonImmigration Law Clinic Immigration Court. Cases encompass a broad range of immigration issues, including:

  • deportation defense
  • family reunification
  • political asylum
  • juvenile assistance
  • representation of victims of violence at home, work, and elsewhere

In addition, students conduct community education events on a variety of immigration law issues. They participate in a weekly seminar that provides training in both the substance and the practice of immigration law and the practical skills necessary to become competent and ethical attorneys. Students average 10 hours weekly on their clinical casework.
