The Immigration Law Clinic of the UC Davis School of Law and the Alumni Council are sponsoring an MCLE program on keeping immigrant clients out of detention, and protecting their rights while detained. National experts will lead a training program on key legal issues for immigration and criminal practitioners.

Tom Jawetz, Immigration Detention Staff Attorney for the ACLU's National Prison Project, is a presenter. Jawetz is currently co-counsel in two class action lawsuits pertaining to the conditions of confinement and poor medical care at the San Diego Correctional Facility.

The ACLU's National Prison Project was established in 1972 to protect and promote the civil and constitutional rights of people in detention. The NPP is the only program in the United States that litigates conditions of confinement cases on a national basis.

There is no registration fee and the UC Davis Immigration Law Clinic certifies that this one-day activity conforms to the standards for approved education activities.
