A.C. Locklear of the Immigration Clinic
On March 2, 2016, two groups of students presented at our All-Clinic Rounds Session. Prof. Beth Posner's student from the Civil Legal Assistance Clinic, Patricia Heyen, presented on a housing case she is working on with Laura Campbell involving dangerous living conditions in an affordable housing unit that include black mold, bed bug infestation, disintegrating flooring, and an outdated stove that poses a fire hazard. Prof. Kaci Bishop's students from the Immigration Clinic, Jacob Oakes and A.C. Locklear, presented on the case of a client who is seeking asylum based on persecution by gangs in Honduras.
The students who presented had circulated memoranda prior to the event that summarized the facts and the legal issues implicated; at the session itself they presented for 15 minutes each, and the remaining time was devoted to questions from and discussion with the group.
All 70+ clinic students and this year's 10 faculty supervisors were invited. The session provided an opportunity for a robust discussion of the complex legal and ethical issues raised by clinical work and for students to hear about the cases handled in other clinics.
