What's Happening in the Immigration Clinic
The following are highlights of the Immigration Clinic litigation docket. Student attorneys continue to represent clients successfully before the DHS, the Immigration Courts, and the Fifth Circuit Court in all manner of cases ranging from humanitarian parole and protection, family based residence, and citizenship and naturalization cases. The caliber of several immigration cases has national impact on the development of immigration law and policy. These cases form the largest part of the clinic's docket and are equally as necessary as the contested residence and asylum cases to expose students to the breadth of immigration procedures and laws and the skills needed to develop facts, read statutes and effectively represent clients within an administrative framework.
