Immigration Justice Clinic

The Immigration Justice Clinic (IJC), one of Pace Law's flagship clinical programs, provides free representation to eligible immigrants who are facing deportation and/or seeking to regularize their legal status.  Upper-level Pace Law students have the opportunity to receive academic credit for their work in the clinic, where they directly represent and advise clients under the close supervision and training of our Pace Law faculty immigration experts, including well-known immigration advocate Professor Vanessa Merton.  The Immigration Justice Clinic has successfully prepared numerous students for careers in immigration law; we are also very proud that several of our clinic alums have received the prestigious Immigration Justice Corps post-graduate fellowship.
