LAWS 9953 Immigration Externship (Fall/Spring: 2 )

Course Description

The Immigration Externship Program provides students with the opportunity to develop their immigration lawyering skills and exposes them to the realities of immigration practice. Participants work either off campus at a firm or non-profit, or on campus with the Post-Deportation Human Rights Project. Practice areas vary but often involve asylum, adjustment of status for victims of domestic violence, employment-based, or deportation defense. Students state any preferences as to substantive areas of the law; type of work (e.g., client interviewing or brief-writing); or office environment (e.g., firm or non-profit).
