    The Bacon Immigration Law and Policy Program Fellowship is a program at the Rogers College of Law that generates immigration policy research, expands opportunities for students to gain exposure to immigration issues, encourages the interdisciplinary engagement with immigration issues, and provides services to immigrants in Southern Arizona.  The Program serves as an umbrella for all the law school’s immigration-related offerings, including its Immigration Law Clinic, doctrinal courses, internships, and opportunities to undertake supervised research on immigration issues.  The current areas of research focus for the Bacon Program are immigration detention and immigrant workers’ rights. 

    The Bacon Fellowship has three major components:

    1.  The Fellow has primary responsibility for the Tucson Immigrant Workers’ Project, a component of the Bacon Program that advocates for the rights of low-wage immigrant workers through direct service, public policy research, and community education and outreach.
