IMMIGRATION LITIGATION SKILLS AND INTRODUCTION TO POST CONVICTION RELIEF
(LAWG-4085) - 2 UNITS

As immigration enforcement surges, immigration attorneys can expect be in court far more frequently. This course will prepare students for the realities of litigating a case before the Executive Office for Immigration Review (such as pleadings, contesting service, contesting removability, motions available in court, court procedure and more), and introduce students to immigration and criminal law as well as remedies in California for post-conviction relief. Students will be evaluated based on simulations such as pleadings and a mock trial. Additionally, opportunities will be given to draft documents such as motions to suppress and to terminate, opposition to the government's position and legal arguments, both individually and in teams.

Professor will consider waiver of pre or co-req for students with substantive immigration experience. Contact Prof. Emily Robinson to request the waiver
