Appellate Immigration Clinic

Appellate Immigration Clinic
Students will brief and argue an appellate case representing a client pro bono under faculty supervision.  The Appellate Clinic is a year-long course for three credits, which will also satisfy the upper level writing requirement.  In addition to the representation dimension, there will be a classroom component involving study of written and oral advocacy, appellate courts, appellate jurisdiction, and the rules of appellate procedure.  The Appellate Clinic will be offered in those years in which we are able to identify a suitable pro bono case.  (3 credits over 2 semesters)
