DePaul College of Law's well-known immigration program includes experienced
faculty, the Asylum and Refugee Law Clinic and the Immigration Law Clinic, which has trained a
generation of immigration lawyers since 1999. In particular, the Technical Assistance Project assists over 30
immigrant-serving, community-based organizations by providing legal services,
staff resources, and assistance with the development of legal service capacity.
This project has received broad financial support from foundations to continue
its innovative work expanding access to justice in immigration and asylum
issues across the region. Students enrolled in both of the Clinics develop their
lawyering skills while serving some of the community’s most vulnerable members.
Globally, through the International Human Rights Law
Practicum and the Advanced International Human Rights Law Practicum, students
work directly to promote international human rights. This work includes
investigating and documenting human rights violations, creating legal and
policy recommendations, and utilizing international human rights law
