Immigration Clinic

Directed by Professor Niels Frenzen since its inception in spring 2001, students in the Clinic provide pro bono representation to clients in a variety of immigration cases including asylum, applications for relief under the Violence Against Women Act, and other applications for relief from removal. Many of the clients who are seeking asylum are victims of torture, including rape and other forms of severe violence. In some cases, the client's life or freedom is at stake.

Asylum cases comprise the majority of the Immigration Clinic's docket of 80-90 open cases. Currently the clinic is representing clients from over 25 different countries. Most come from Africa; others are from Mexico, the Middle East, Europe and South and Central America.
