Advancing Social Justice Through Transformative Practice

An immigrant woman experiences domestic violence. An 80-year-old man fears eviction from the nursing home that has been his home for a decade. A family from a war-torn part of the world fears that deportation is a death sentence.

These people, and so many more like them, face complex legal, psychological and social issues, and lack the resources to pay for the professional services they need.

Enter the Interprofessional Center for Counseling and Legal Services of the University of St. Thomas. Working collaboratively, students from the university's schools of Law, Professional Psychology and Social Work strive to meet the needs of underserved people as they gain valuable real-world experience in their chosen fields of study.
