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.
 
Reisz was a trial attorney for six years at the Los Angeles County Public Defender and Alternate Public Defender where she handled misdemeanor and felony cases in downtown Los Angeles and Compton. 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: Gregory Keating

Gregory Keating was quoted about a lawsuit alleging 37 oil and gas companies are responsible for the sea level rise in certain California coastal counties. “I don’t think this is crazy, but it’s a long shot,” said Keating. “The hard thing is these defendants don’t just directly emit the fossil fuel into the atmosphere. They do things like sell gasoline to people who drive automobiles and put emissions into the air that way.”
