Asylum Clinic

Asylum Clinic

Professor Lauris Wren, Attorney-in-Charge
Maximum Enrollment: 8 Students

In the Asylum Clinic, students represent political asylum applicants in immigration proceedings before asylum officers, immigration judges and the Board of Immigration Appeals.

Our clients fled their countries because of torture or other persecution, based on race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group.

If they are granted political asylum, our clients will be able to remain in the United States, to bring their immediate family here and, and one year after winning asylum, to apply for permanent residence.

Our clients’ lives literally depend on the outcome of the asylum case.

Students have represented clients from such countries as Cameroon, Chad, Congo, Cote d’Ivoire, Albania, Chile, Peru, Venezuela, Jamaica, Trinidad, India, Nepal and Tibet.
