Jean Reisz, the Audrey Irmas Clinical Teaching Fellow, co-teaches the Immigration Clinic, as well as supervises cases in the Post-Conviction Justice Project. Under her supervision, second and third year law students enrolled in the Immigration Clinic represent individuals seeking relief from removal in the form of asylum, withholding, and relief under the Convention Against Torture in proceedings before the Immigration Court, Board of Immigration Appeals, and U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Clinic students also represent clients in other types of cases, including affirmative asylum cases, Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) immigrant visa petitions, and crime victim visas (U visa status petitions). The Immigration Clinic has recently expanded its scope to represent unaccompanied minors.
 
Reisz was a trial attorney for six years at the Los Angeles County Public Defender and Alternate Public Defender where she handled misdemeanor and felony cases in downtown Los Angeles and Compton. Prior to becoming the Audrey Irmas Clinical Teaching Fellow, Reisz was a senior associate at Archer Norris, PLC, where she handled products liability, and wrongful death cases. Reisz graduated from USC Gould School of Law.

Re: Lisa Klerman

Lisa Klerman was quoted on the rising number of lawsuits by women alleging inequality in pay compared to men and on the challenges in presenting such cases to a court. “If it merits a differential in pay, then the employer can pay the different rate without running afoul of the equal-pay laws,” Klerman said.
