8AM to 5PM  (Check-in begins at 8AM. Program begins at 8:40AM.)

The workshop, hosted by the UH Immigration Clinic in conjunction with Catholic Charities and YMCA International, will take place at the UH Law Center and is accredited for 6.75 CLE hours (including 1 ethics hour) by the State Bar of Texas.

The CLE training is free, but licensed attorneys must pledge to take at least one UAC case following the training.

The morning portion of the workshop will focus on Unaccompanied Alien Child (UAC) asylum issues. In the afternoon we are fortunate to have two retired Immigration Judges who will speak for a portion of the program on asylum and related issues.

Registration is required. To register, contact bgossett@uh.edu. For information about UAC cases, contact ghoffman@central.uh.edu.

CourtTHE CLINICAL LEGAL EDUCATION PROGRAM offers law students an exciting opportunity to have hands-on, practical experience in the legal profession while still in law school. Under the guidance and supervision of clinical faculty, our law students handle all aspect of cases, from interviewing, to filing motions, to conducting trials in court.

The mission of The Clinical Legal Education Program is threefold.

  • To train law students to be competent, professional and ethical advocates for their clients

  • To provide first-rate pro-bono legal representation to indigent clients and communities in Harris County in the areas of law covered by the particular clinic

  • To provide support to the courts and legislature and to develop policies that can improve the surrounding communities

The late professor Joseph E. Hensley began the University of Houston Law Center's Clinical Programs in the early 1960's. Thanks to his vision, leadership and compassion, thousands of UH Law Center Graduates have continued his commitment to provide quality representation to those in need.
