Classroom to courtroom: Law School immigration counseling program helps the powerless while educating students
October 14, 2014
The Harvard Immigration and Refugee Clinical Program at HLS, which marked its 30th anniversary this year, trains students to represent refugees seeking asylum in the U.S.
On June 17, about 200 Harvard Law School alumni and students gathered to mark the 30th anniversary of the Harvard Immigration & Refugee Clinical Program (HIRC). It was a celebration of "30 Years of Social Change Lawyering," and it brought together advocates from around the country and the world.
From March 15-23, many Harvard Law students used their spring break to learn about the law outside the classroom.
