Temple University’s Beasley School of Law announced this week the creation of a new clinic focusing on Third Circuit appeals. The clinic will focus on pro bono immigration appeals, but students may also work on prisoners’ rights and habeas cases, too.
From the announcement:
The clinic will be taught by Professor Mary Levy, who noted that while litigants in immigration and civil rights appeals have a much greater likelihood of success if they are represented by counsel, high quality, affordable representation is scarce. Levy expressed enthusiasm for the clinic as an “excellent opportunity to fill that gap by marshalling our exceptionally talented upper level students to provide pro bono representation while allowing them a ‘real world’ opportunity to utilize the advocacy skills they learned at Temple Law.”
This is splendid news, and I can’t wait to see the clinic students in action.
