Course Description: This course is designed to provide students with exposure to immigration law and its practical application. Students will have the opportunity to represent low income immigrants who face deportation and investigate immigration consequences of crimes.
Students are likely to interview clients, develop case strategy, prepare witnesses, and develop cases for trial. Students should expect to spend on average eight hours a week on case work outside of class. The precise work conducted, however, will depend on the clients who need representation and the posture of their cases.
Course Requirements: Ethics is a co-requisite for this course. Spanish language skills and prior coursework or externships in the area of immigration law and trial practice are preferred but not required.
