Primary Instructor:

What would it be like to be part of a research team working for a immigrant rights advocacy agency? What would it be like to spend a semester working with other students to support lawyers who work on asylum cases here in Michigan? This is the idea behind the Immigration Law Research Clinic. Under faculty supervision, students will deepen their understanding of immigration law and policy, develop historical research skills, and explore the history of violence and migration in Central America since the 1980s through work on real-life asylum cases. They will also learn summarize and translate historical texts, to write effective legal documents, and contribute to developing a national research database for use in asylum cases. Come do history that matters.

Intended Audience:

This course is open to graduate and professional students as well as advanced undergraduates. Students with personal experiences with the immigration system or with advanced language proficiency (especially in Spanish) are strongly encouraged to enroll. But all are welcome.
