A new Immigrant Justice Clinic, the first resource of its kind in Wisconsin, launched this semester at the University of Wisconsin Law School.
Addressing a statewide gap in services, the clinic offers legal representation to immigrants who are detained in Wisconsin and facing deportation. By performing all aspects of their clients' representation, from the intake interviews to the final hearing in the Chicago immigration court, students gain valuable skills in interviewing, client counseling, research and writing and trial techniques.
The clinic is located at 2300 S. Park St., Room 109, in Madison, and open Mondays from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. and Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to noon.
