Brooke’s work in the immigration law field began with an Immigration Law elective course which prompted her to seek placement with the Immigration Law Clinic in the Edward P. Swyer Justice Center at Albany Law School. Brooke’s clinical work only furthered her interest in immigration law. Brooke’s host organization placement is with Prisoners’ Legal Services where she will be defending noncitizens from removal. This organization began in the 1970s as a response to the Attica prison riots. Incarcerated individuals face a plethora of obstacles which threaten their sense of freedom and autonomy. Individuals who are subject to removal proceedings because of their immigration status and criminal record in the United States deserve representation and an opportunity to reside in the United States.
