The Immigration and Farmworker (I/F) Project teaches law school students best practices in client-centered and trauma-informed lawyering for immigrants, farmworkers, their families and their communities. Students represent survivors of violence, people fleeing persecution, abused children and other vulnerable groups in applying for immigration relief before administrative courts and agencies. Through work on individual cases, students gain knowledge and experience in the fundamental skills of lawyering and the substantive laws related to immigration.
