Asylum and Immigrant Rights Law Clinic

Asylum Law Clinic students


In Asylum Law Clinic student review the basics of asylum law and procedure, and also develop professional skills. Students represent asylum seekers and render legal assistance to families in immigration matters. Students also write appellate briefs for the Board of Immigration Appeals.

"Working in the Asylum and Immigrant Rights Clinic is 100 percent hands-on experience in the practice of law. During my semester in the Clinic we worked with clients from Rwanda, Burma, and Guatemala and learned about the different types of persecution facing the people of those countries."
