Florida Immigrant Advocacy Center (Miami)

Students represent indigent clients in immigration actions, including petitions seeking asylum and defense of deportation actions. Bilingual students (Spanish and/or Haitian) are preferred for this placement. Practice focuses on interviewing, case analysis and strategy, and the drafting of pleadings and motions before the federal Immigration and Naturalization Service. Limited opportunities may arise for representation of clients in motions or final hearings before the INS.
