The Immigration Law and Human Rights Pathway is designed as a guided curriculum that will provide you with the lawyering skills of a civil litigator along with a substantive background in immigration law, civil rights, and international human rights. Immigration attorneys practice not only before administrative agencies, but also the federal circuit courts for immigration appeals. Students who elect this concentration will hone their skills in legal research, writing and oral advocacy that can be used in a variety of practice settings, including non-profit organizations, NGOs, government agencies, solo and small to mid-size boutique firms.
