Join the Lawyer's Committee for Civil Rights for a special "brown bag" panel presentation that will explore various aspects of representing children seeking asylum. Panelists, including CGRS Associate Director Lisa Frydman, will discuss asylum law as it pertains to children in particular and will also share strategies for working effecitvely with child asylum seekers. In addition to discussing the legal implications of a child asylum seeker's age and recent case examples, the panelists will talk about how to work with a child who has experienced trauma in a productive and sensitive way.

CGRS Director Karen Musalo has published a chapter on her groundbreaking litigation on behalf of Fauziya Kassindja and of Rody Alvarado, called “A Tale of Two Women,” in a new book, "Gender in Refugee Law: From the Margins to the Centre." More information available at
