Rutgers-Newark Immigrant Rights Clinic
The Immigrant Rights Clinic, the newest of the Rutgers-Newark clinics, serves the local and national immigrant population through a combination of individual client representation and broader advocacy projects. Under faculty supervision, students represent immigrants seeking various forms of relief from removal, including asylum for persecuted individuals; protection for victims of human trafficking; protection for battered immigrants; protection for victims of certain types of crimes; protection for abused, abandoned, or neglected immigrant children; and cancellation of removal.
