There are no detention facilities near or close to Tennessee. The closest detention facility is in Oakdale, Louisiana. While the clinic does not do detention work, Assistant Dean for Public Interest Dean Spring Miller started a project during the 2017-18 academic year with the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), Southeastern Immigrant Freedom Initiative (SIFI) where students work on bond motions – collecting evidence and writing briefs – for pro bono hours. The students were trained at the beginning of the academic year and would volunteer for projects that SPLC SIFI forwarded to us and would work on the cases remotely. In addition, this year, for one of the volunteer/pro bono spring break trips the students went to the Stewart detention facility with SPLC SIFI attorneys and volunteered for the entire week arguing bond motions.
