Erin M. Barbato directs the Immigrant Justice Clinic at the University of Wisconsin Law School. She teaches second and third year law students to represent individuals in removal proceedings and those seeking humanitarian-based immigration relief. She also leads groups of law students to volunteer at detention centers close to our southern border and to work with people seeking asylum forced to remain in Mexico under the Migrant Protection Protocols. Her research concentrates on the human rights violations in the US immigration detention system and the right of children to have legal representation in immigration court.
