"With the backlog of immigration cases in U.S. immigration court recently exceeding 3 million, immigration practitioners and professors hope to expand access to legal services for noncitizens. One Maryland law school is aiming to close the legal representation gap. The University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law’s federal appellate immigration clinic, now in its third semester, represents clients before the Board of Immigration Appeals and the U.S. Court of Appeals, often in deportation cases. Aadhithi Padmanabhan, assistant professor at Maryland Carey Law and director of the federal immigration clinic, said one of the goals of the clinic is to expand access to appellate legal services for noncitizens going through the deportation process."
