Teaching Asylum: Well-Founded Fear

As I've mentioned before, I like to use the documentary Well-Founded Fear when teaching asylum. I play a series of clips from the film, give students a copy of the USCIS Fraud Referral Sheet, and ask them to evaluate the merits of the applicants, taking into account the factors stated in the sheet. We discuss how their impressions of these migrants changed over time, what changed, and why. We talk about the role of lawyers in preparing clients and cases for the USCIS.

I'm thrilled to report that the entire documentary is now available online:
