Cooley Law School to open immigrant rights clinic in Ann Arbor
Low-income immigrants in the Washtenaw County area will soon be able to get free legal help from the Thomas M. Cooley Law School’s Ann Arbor campus.
Jason Eyster, an associate professor at Cooley Law School, will run the new immigrant rights clinic. He says they’ll be able to take up to six immigration cases at a time, dealing with a variety of issues:
"In the immigration area: individuals are seeking asylum, seeking withholding of removal, seeking cancelation of removal, or seeking clarity on what their rights may or may not be," said Eyster.
Eyster says they’ll also help immigrants with other issues, like "foreclosure, landlord-tenant, custody issues, and that sort of thing."
The clinic doesn't open until next month, but Eyster says they're already booked.
