The Immigration Law Clinic began operating in the fall of 2002 and provides quality legal services to members of the immigrant community throughout the region.
Southeastern Massachusetts has significant immigrant populations, often with special legal needs. Students enrolled in this year-long clinic attend classes and handle various immigration law issues under the supervision of a faculty member and cooperating field supervisor chosen from the South Coast legal community.
During their time in the clinic, students will have the opportunity to represent their clients before various tribunals, including
Immigration Court, and spend an average of twelve hours each
week in their Clinic work.
The Immigration Law Clinic is directed by Irene Scharf and can be reached at 508.985.1106/1146.
