Jesuit Law Schools using Skills to help Asylum Seekers

Law students from thirteen different Jesuit law schools are using their knowledge and expertise to assist those who have immigrated to the United States from Central America and are seeking asylum. In recognition of World Refugee Day, these schools collaborated to create a report both detailing the work they are doing as well as the challenges they face in delivering these services.

Participating law schools are: Boston College, Creighton University, Fordham University, Georgetown University, Gonzaga University, Loyola University Chicago (in close collaboration with the Center for the Human Rights of Children housed at Loyola University Chicago), Loyola Law School Los Angeles, Loyola University New Orleans, Saint Louis University (in close collaboration with the Catholic Legal Assistance Ministry housed at Saint Louis University), Santa Clara University, Seattle University, University of Detroit Mercy, and University of San Francisco.
