Immigration Law Society

Mission Statement:
The goal of the Immigration Law Society is to bring together students who are interested in the growing practice of Immigration Law. The Society is premised on education and networking in the field of immigration law, exposing students to the various areas of immigration law (such as Family-Based Immigration, Asylum Law, Removal Proceedings, and Business Immigration Law), and demonstrate how Immigration Law has the potential to intersect with other fields of law (such as criminal law, labor law, family law and constitutional law). The Society hosts meetings that showcase guest speakers from the field, pro-bono clinics in collaboration with local and national humanitarian clinics, and interactive events with various types of practitioners (such as immigration lawyers, judges, attorneys from U.S. Department of Homeland Security, officers from U.S. Customers and Border Protection, defense attorneys, and representatives of public interest and charitable organizations). 

The Immigration Law Society’s aim is to expose students to current issues in Immigration Law, educate its members on the different facets of immigration law in practice, encourage an empathetic approach to immigration law, and provide interested students with opportunities to get involved in this increasingly-relevant and important field of law.
