How it Works
Clients work closely with current students at Yale Law School who are supervised by Professors Carroll Lucht, Stephen Wizner, and Jean Koh Peters, all of whom are experienced immigration attorneys. Other professionals associated with Yale University also assist with each client’s case, as necessary. Students will prepare affidavits and briefs on behalf of their clients. These documents explain the specific circumstances of each client’s case and detail the political, economic, and social conditions in the countries from which the client has fled. In addition, students will represent clients in interviews with immigration officials and in oral arguments before judges in administrative proceedings and the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.
