This clinic essentially runs as a small law office that is appointed to represent indigent parties with appeals before the United States Courts of Appeals and before federal administrative agencies such as the Board of Immigration Appeals. Once the clinic is appointed to represent the client, students draft briefs, argue the case, maintain client contact, and do anything else necessary (including, sometimes, mediating the case).
Course Information & Requirements
