Seattle University Immigration Law Clinic Wins Case for Two Women from East Africa

Professor Laurel Oates of Seattle University School of Law and Adjunct Professor Monika Batra are featured with their students in the February issue of the National Jurist Magazine for their successful work on an asylum case on behalf of two women in East Africa. The students secured T-visas (for victims of Trafficking) for their clients, who were granted asylum and who now live in the United States. 

The Immigration Law Clinic worked with the law school's Legal Writing Program to create fact patterns that were then analyzed by 70 students.  Click here to access the magazine, and then click on the table of contents to read the article.
