With so much political and media attention focused on immigration, there’s a lot to unpack and understand.

That’s why Northeastern Law offers a dynamic mix of courses and hands-on opportunities to explore this complex field of law. In our Immigrant Justice Clinic, you’ll represent real-life clients, handling applications for asylum, U-visas, T-visas and other forms of relief. There are also opportunities to travel to the border with Mexico to assist with refugee and asylum cases and to explore your specific focus areas through independent studies. In our clinic, in courses taught by faculty who are renowned immigration scholars and advocates and through co-ops across the globe, you’ll have unparalleled opportunities to dive into immigration law and position yourself for leadership in the field.
