Jean Reisz, the Audrey Irmas Clinical Teaching Fellow, co-teaches the Immigration Clinic, as well as supervises cases in the Post-Conviction Justice Project. Under her supervision, second and third year law students enrolled in the Immigration Clinic represent individuals seeking relief from removal in the form of asylum, withholding, and relief under the Convention Against Torture in proceedings before the Immigration Court, Board of Immigration Appeals, and U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Clinic students also represent clients in other types of cases, including affirmative asylum cases, Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) immigrant visa petitions, and crime victim visas (U visa status petitions). The Immigration Clinic has recently expanded its scope to represent unaccompanied minors.

Prior to becoming the Audrey Irmas Clinical Teaching Fellow, Reisz was a senior associate at Archer Norris, PLC, where she handled products liability, and wrongful death cases. Reisz graduated from USC Gould School of Law.

Re: Edward Kleinbard

Edward Kleinbard was quoted on why the GOP's tax reform bill may not encourage more investment by corporations. The bill features “a very top-heavy distribution,” said Kleinbard. The markets “are awash in capital today, and there’s not a sign of needing more investment.”
