On October 5, Immigration Clinic students Morgan Nelson and Phong Tran presented to Professor Regian Werum’s Sociology of Race and Ethnicity class on UNL’s city campus. The focus of the presentation was on the work they are doing as students in the Immigration Clinic. Specifically, Morgan and Phong talked about cases in which they are representing cases in the following areas: DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), VAWA (Violence Against Women Act), and asylum. They explained to the students in Professor Werum’s class what their role is as students in the Immigration Clinic, the administrative structure of the federal cabinet departments that run the U.S. immigration system, and the substantive and procedural provisions with which immigrants must contend while interfacing with the immigration bureaucracy in the U.S. Their presentation continues a tradition of Immigration Clinic students presenting to Professor Werum’s Sociology class during the fall and spring semesters of each academic year.
