Clinical Professor and Director of the Immigrant Justice Clinic at the Law School Erin Barbato,
Immigration Courtside tipped me off to some law school news.
The Gargoyle, the University of Wisconsin Law Schoo's alumni magazine, reports that
"The UW Law School launched a new center to support Wisconsin’s DREAMers . . . . The Center for DREAMers was awarded a grant through the Baldwin Wisconsin Idea Endowment, a competitive grant program that fosters public engagement and the advancement of the Wisconsin Idea.
Clinical Professor and Director of the Immigrant Justice Clinic at the Law School Erin Barbato, together with Erika Rosales of the School of Education, will lead the Center for DREAMers.
The center will serve the approximately 11,000 DREAMers in Wisconsin, working with organizations to coordinate the provision of legal representation, mental and social services, and career and educational counseling to ease the burden of some of the uncertainty experienced by undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children."
The Center's website includes the following Toolkits & Resources for Students, Service Providers & Educators:
