Boyd School of Law Releases Edward M. Bernstein & & Associates Kid’s Rights Program

The UNLV William S. Boyd School of Law formally introduced the Edward & M. Bernstein & Associates Children’s Rights Program where lawyers and law trainees interact to represent unaccompanied kids in migration procedures.

During a ceremony Nov. 16 at the Law School’s Thomas & & Mack Moot Courtroom, university management, chosen officials and neighborhood supporters acknowledged a transformational $250,000 present from Edward M. Bernstein & & Associates that will allow the school to continue its work on behalf of local unaccompanied immigrant kids.

“A core objective of the UNLV William S. Boyd School of Law is to act as a legal resource and partner for our regional community, which we might not satisfy without the assistance of individuals and companies throughout the community,” said Daniel W. Hamilton, dean of the UNLV Boyd School of Law. “We are honored and humbled by Edward M.

Three years back, the UNLV Immigration Center was one of just 7 organizations– and the only law school– to receive an AmeriCorps grant to supply legal defense to kids leaving violence and abuse in Central America who got here alone in the United States. However, the AmeriCorps program has been terminated causing UNLV’s AmeriCorps grant to end in October. The Bernstein’s donation will money the center for the next five years and guarantee its work will continue uninterrupted.

“I am proud of our UNLV Boyd School of Law which has taken a leadership role in securing the rights of the most susceptible of our society and insuring that justice is available to all of us,” stated Ed Bernstein. “My wife Claudia emigrated from Peru 25 years back and that individual connection makes migration problems near and dear to my heart, in addition to civil liberties and law-related matters.”

The Kid’s Rights Program works closely with the Legal Help Center of Southern Nevada to represent unaccompanied children in both household court and in their immigration cases.

“The Bernstein’s commitment to the kids of the Las Vegas neighborhood will guarantee our mission to represent minors who have actually run away abuse find safety and stability in the United States,” said Michael Kagan, Teacher of Law and director of the Immigration Center. “The Clinic provides direct representation to as many of these children as it can, and trains other pro bono legal representatives to do the exact same.”

Today’s ceremony consisted of welcome remarks from Senator Harry Reid and a keynote address by Tyler Moran, managing director of the D.C. Immigration Hub, previous senior policy advisor for Sen. Harry Reid, and previous Migration Deputy Policy Director for the White Home Domestic Policy Council under President Obama. Additional speakers and fans, consisted of: Barbara Buckley, Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada Executive Director; Yvanna D. Cancela, Nevada State Senate; Edgar Flores, Nevada State Assembly; Jason Frierson, Speaker of the Nevada State Assembly; Michael Kagan, Teacher of Law and Director of the UNLV Migration Clinic; Sam Lieberman, Nevada Board of Regents; and Tom Thomas, Thomas & & Mack Company.

The work of the Children’s Rights Program is closely connected to the nationally acknowledged Kids’ Court School, which educates child witnesses– a number of whom are victims of abuse– about court and teaches them techniques to minimize stress and anxiety while testifying. The Kids’ Court School has served over 1,200 children in the previous decade and has just recently expanded to the National Judicial College in Reno. The program is broadening its award-winning operate in informing child witnesses to educating kids and youth about immigration proceedings.

“I initially became involved since I felt the need to help a lot of immigrants who lack resources to win the right to remain securely in this nation,” said Claudia Noriega-Bernstein, marketing director at Edward M. Bernstein & & Associates and children’s rights advocate. “After discovering whatever that the UNLV Kids’ Court School provides for our regional kids, I became a lot more passionate about offering all kids in our community a voice specifically due to the fact that if these kids are deported to their native nations they are often subjected to horrific violence.”

A fundraising occasion is planned for May 2018 to secure extra financing for the UNLV Children’ Court School.
