The Transnational Workers Rights Clinic has definitely improved my understandings of the plight of low wage immigrant workers. Many times I have been standing in line in a bank or store and come across immigrants who cannot cash their checks because bank accounts have been closed or because of insufficient funds. Everyone who sees this feels concern for these immigrants, but the general consensus seems to be that there is nothing they can do because they are undocumented. I know now that these assumptions are false, and have shared this information with many people, including those who hire immigrants thinking that they will be able to exploit them. The client contact and actually working on real cases, rather than reading about them in books, is an invaluable experience that every law student should have.
