Nicole Iraola, '19, a third-year law student currently enrolled in the Immigration Clinic at the College of Law, conducted a guardianship hearing in the Adams County Court in Hastings on March 13. The court appointed a guardian for Ms. Iraola's minor client, whose parents are both deceased, and made special findings that will allow the client to pursue Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS) with United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. Such status will ultimately result in the client obtaining permanent residency (i.e., getting her "green card"). Ms. Iraola is one of 10 third-year law students enrolled in the Immigration Clinic this year. The faculty supervisor in the Clinic is Professor Kevin Ruser.
