Immigration Justice Clinic - UW Law Clinic
The Immigrant Justice Clinic (IJC) provides legal services to Wisconsin's under served immigrant community. This may include filing applications for humanitarian relief available to non-citizen victims of crime, persecution, and human trafficking, or defending non-citizens facing removal in Immigration Court. Students also make monthly visits to the Dodge County Detention Center in Juneau, Wisconsin, to conduct intakes and provide legal assistance to non-citizens detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The Clinic also engages in appellate advocacy on behalf of indigent non-citizens through the filing of written legal briefs to the Board of Immigration Appeals. IJC also works with criminal defense attorneys to negotiate plea agreements that will not adversely affect their clients' immigration status. Law students (under the supervision of the clinical instructor) provide these legal services free of charge.
