IMMIGRANT JUSTICE CLINIC ADVANCED
(LAWG-5002) - 4 UNIT
Loyola Immigrant Justice Clinic (LIJC) is a live-client community based immigration clinic that focuses on providing representation to individuals who are unable to obtain immigration legal services elsewhere with a specific focus on immigrants residing in the East Los Angeles area, specifically the constituents of Dolores Mission and Homeboy Industries. Students enrolled in this course must have already completed Immigrant Justice Clinic and Clinic Seminar I&II and will engage with advanced, complex immigration issues, humanitarian forms of immigration relief and the intersection of immigration and criminal law enhancing the skills they obtained during their first year enrolled in the Clinic. Students will be assigned immigration cases for individual clients which they will litigate from start to finish. They will also engage in legislative and community based advocacy work as well as research and writing to support those efforts. Participation in LIJC exposes students to the lawyering and advocacy skills necessary to be an effective immigrants' rights attorney and teaches students about both substantive and procedural law as it relates to clients' cases. Students will hold office hours commensurate with the number of units enrolled. Professor approval required.
Enrollment is competitive and by application only. Application information is available for registered Symplicity users (search job postings) and at http://bit.ly/howtoclinics
