Former Student/Alumni

When I began the Immigration Clinic, I had a strong inclination toward practicing immigration law. Helping people realize their dream of remaining in the U.S. was more rewarding than I could have imagined. I also had to face the harsh reality that, regardless of the outcome of each case, I had to remain as professional and objective to the client as possible. My experience in the Clinic challenged my core beliefs regarding my purpose as an attorney. Yet, when I finished my third semester in the Clinic I was certain that I wanted to practice immigration law.
