Jaime Latcham (JD ’12) and Joslyn Massengale (JD ’12) on their time in Israel doing an independent clinical program with a Winter Term International Travel Grant at the Refugee Rights Clinic, Tel Aviv University

“Refugee law is in a constant state of flux in Israel, and at the clinic our work focuses on both representing individual clients as well as challenging administrative regulations that we believe violate the rights of asylum-seekers. Last week our clinic argued a petition before the Supreme Court challenging the prohibition on work. We are now deciding how best to challenge other new policies, such as the detention of asylum-seekers when they present themselves to register, and the lack of a meaningful appeals process.”
