Next week, students from Branch Out Alternative Breaks will virtually visit the Immigration Clinic to learn more about immigration law and create a fundraiser to benefit the Immigration Clinic. The Clinic will host fourteen students via Zoom. Over the three days of their trip, the students will learn about asylum law, domestic violence, and human trafficking.
“We’re very excited to host the Branch Out students next week,” said Nicole Alanko, the Clinic’s Immigrant Justice Corps Fellow. “We are the first Clinic at the Law School to host Branch Out, and we hope we won’t be the last.”
The students will also have the opportunity to speak with current law students and to learn more about careers in immigrants’ rights advocacy through the Immigrant Justice Corps Community Fellowship program.
Branch Out Alternative Breaks is a program sponsored by the William & Mary Office of Community Engagement for currently enrolled undergraduate and graduate students. Learn more about the Office of Community Engagement and Branch Out Alternative Breaks on their website.
