Refugee and Immigrant Advocacy Clinic (No Longer Offered)
In the Refugee and Immigrant Advocacy Clinic, students represent immigrants to gain access to basic needs, such as food, health care, financial subsistence, employment and training. Students may also help with applications for immigration status as victims of human trafficking or with pursuing citizenship. The Refugee and Immigrant Advocacy Clinic is a community collaboration with the Northwest Justice Project, Washington State’s general civil legal service provider with offices around the state.
