CUNY: Immigrant Rights

Students learn to advance social and economic justice through a reflective practice on behalf of individual immigrants and activist groups. Students represent and support non-citizens in a variety of settings and courts, covering immigration issues, law and security, and gender violence. Under the supervision of faculty, students represent individuals in federal and immigration court proceedings at the trial and appellate levels. They also represent community organizations by providing legislative and policy counsel on a variety of matters and undertake community education programs in the neighborhoods of New York.
