Farmworker Legal Assistance Clinic

Employment on a farm is one of the world’s most difficult and dangerous occupations. Farmworkers experience geographic, linguistic and cultural isolation; immigration insecurity; and exclusion from protective employment laws. Through the Farmworker Legal Assistance Clinic, Cornell law students handle immigration and employment matters on behalf of area farmworkers — representing individual clients, offering brief advice and referral services, and providing research support for farmworker rights organizations. Students work with clients on a myriad of issues, from securing permanent residence and deportation relief for teens to conducting brief advice and referral outreach trips to addressing worker-protection violations.
