In recognition of a transformational gift, the UNLV Thomas & Mack Immigration Clinic has created the Edward M. Bernstein and Associates Children's Rights Program. This Program defends unaccompanied immigrant children, most from Central America, who have fled violence and abuse to find safety and stability in the United States. The clinic works closely with our partners at the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada to represent unaccompanied children in both family court and in their immigration cases. Please join us as we celebrate Ed and Claudia Bernstein's exceptional generosity and their support of children in our community.
