Cornell Law School’s robust and thriving experiential learning program traces its roots back to 1960. Today, it is an essential part of our educational mission, encompassing twenty-three clinics and practicum courses and an extensive array of externships and simulation courses.
Students in the Immigration Law and Advocacy Clinic recently took a trip down to Louisiana to assist detained immigrants with attorneys from @rfkhumanrights and @aclu.louisiana. They met with dozens of individuals from all over the world to assess their immigration cases. Take a look at some of the snapshots from their trip! #CornellLawClinics #CornellLaw
