Immigration Clinic

As a student attorney in the Immigration Clinic, you will serve on the front lines of one of the most critical human rights battles our country has faced. You will work directly with your clients, representing individuals fleeing persecution, those facing deportation because of criminal conviction, and those who have been the target of abusive enforcement practices. You may advocate before the Department of Homeland Security, the Baltimore Immigration Court, the Board of Immigration Appeals, or in the federal courts. You will have extensive client contact and learn collaboration in a litigation setting; immigration law and trial skills in the context of practice; issues of professional responsibility in client representation; the role of the attorney in providing access to the justice system; and wider issues of US immigration policy.

I was really nervous to be in a courtroom in front of a judge and have that pressure, but Professor Sweeney helped us get prepared for that moment.
