Gonzaga University Law School in Spokane is partnering with Catholic Charities of Eastern Washington to offer immigration legal assistance to low-income individuals, as well as training in immigration law for students.
Second- and third-year law students under faculty supervision will assist clients pro bono in the "Catholic Charities Immigration Clinic at Gonzaga Law School" starting this fall.
"We're viewing this almost like a joint venture between the two of us," Jacob Rooksby, dean of Gonzaga Law School, told CNA.
"The attorney in charge has a vast network through her time at Catholic Charities. We envision the students and the attorney going on-site to different areas of the state to provide walk-up assistance, and that's going to start as we get further into the project," Rooksby said.
