GW Law's Immigration Clinic Assists Clients Worldwide


Paulina Vera and Alberto Benítez joined Alexander Love, a former client of the Immigration Clinic at GW Law, at his naturalization ceremony



The Immigration Clinic at GW Law started in 1979 and has helped countless people seek asylum or resist deportation. Clinic members have assisted victims of trafficking as well as DREAMers and youth covered by the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

They have worked with clients from El Salvador, Ghana, Mozambique, Nigeria, Indonesia, China and elsewhere. Recently, they helped a returning client—a woman they successfully represented in her application for asylum in 2018—bring her four children to the United States from Honduras.

On average, the clinic helps about 50 people per year, including the family members of clients, and the clinic’s efforts on behalf of clients can stretch over several years.
