Jean Reisz supervises cases in the USC Gould School of Law Immigration Clinic. 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.

Re: Camille Gear Rich

Camille Gear Rich was interviewed about the university's Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Week. "Everyone has some issue of difference that they're negotiating," said Gear Rich. "if we can use those things as a bridge to start having these broader conversations, then everyone feels included and feels like they have something to offer."
