Immigrants' Rights Clinic

In the Immigrants’ Rights Clinic (IRC), students represent immigrants in deportation proceedings before the San Francisco immigration court as well as other administrative bodies and the federal courts, including the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Students develop core litigation and trial skills by: writing and arguing complex legal motions; counseling clients; interviewing witnesses and experts; developing facts; conducting mini-trials involving direct and cross examination of witnesses; and writing and arguing appeals. IRC clients include asylum seekers fleeing persecution abroad, lawful permanent residents (green card holders), and survivors of domestic violence and torture.
