In the ILC, under the direct supervision of an Albany Law School faculty member, law students are trained to provide direct representation to both detained and non-detained immigrants, including immigrant victims of domestic violence, intimate partner violence and sexual assault. The cases may include special immigrant juveniles, applications under the Violence Against Women Act, representation of victims of violent crime in U-Visa applications, adjustment applications, bond applications, and any other claim for immigration relief that may be available. Students will learn and practice essential lawyering skills and draft correspondence, pleadings, motions and forms central to the application for an immigration benefit.
