Immigration law is the study of rules relating to immigration court proceedings, including the deportation process, employment and education visas, potential deportation offenses, and political asylum and naturalization processes.
Through UMass Law's Immigration Law Clinic, students have been providing immigration legal services to persons in need for more than 15 years. Clinic students are able to work on real-world cases representing individuals, including unaccompanied minors, subject to deportation, seeking family reunification, applying for political asylum, or in need of juvenile or employment visas.
Examples of courses in this area include: administrative law, advanced immigration litigation clinic, appellate advocacy, constitutional law, immigration litigation clinic, professional responsibility, and trial practice.
