Title: Working with students on visa cancellation matters

Lead Presenter: Dianne Anagnos



Session Abstract: Much of the work that clinics do is very confronting to law students. Over the past six years KLC has worked on over 20 matters involving the potential deportation of non-citizens due to their criminal record. The students at the Clinic have been involved in all aspects of these cases including prison visits, writing submissions and interviewing family members. The cases pose significant human rights considerations as well as challenges in supporting students while they grapple with both the clients' serious offending and the real risk of deportation. The student experience of working on these cases will be considered, together with some of the other student work undertaken by KLC.
