As I am about to graduate from law school, I can honestly say that working in the William & Mary Law School Immigration Clinic has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have had in law school. Not only have I been able to gain real world experience, but the work I completed in the Clinic was work that had a significant impact on someone’s life.”

Support our Clinical Supervising Attorney Position.

A full-time, dedicated staff attorney in addition to the director is necessary to sustain and increase the Clinic’s capacity to represent more immigrants in complex cases, train more students, and educate the public on immigration law and policy. The current fellowship position is set to expire at the end of this academic year, at which point the Clinic will have the director as the only attorney on staff. The Clinic cannot sustain its current level of growth without continued funding for a second attorney.

I want to thank all of the people that help [William & Mary Law School Immigration Clinic] continue to grow. Without their help, all of the help that the Clinic gives would not be possible.
