Student Work

In the Crimmigration Clinic students work on cutting-edge issues regarding the intersection of criminal law and immigration law. The content of the clinical projects will depend on the legal landscape and political climate at the time of clinical enrollment.  In the past, students have worked on administrative and federal litigation in both appellate courts and district courts concerning criminal bars to immigration relief, detention, and the crime-based grounds of removal. Students have also drafted reports concerning the funding of immigration detention in Massachusetts, and engaged in legislative advocacy on issues, including drafting sanctuary policies for municipalities around the country. Clinical students will also work with the Harvard Criminal Justice Institute to provide advice to their case teams about the immigration consequences of criminal charges.

Clinical work will largely be performed at HLS. On litigation and policy matters, the Clinic will collaborate with local and national non-profit organizations.
