Impact Litigation

We undertake strategic litigation on behalf of refugees and other immigrants in California before the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR)—including the immigration courts and the Board of Immigration Appeals—the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, and other federal Courts of Appeals. We become involved in influential cases as counsel or co-counsel, as amicus curiae, and as expert consultants to the attorneys and advocacy organizations in such cases. Our goal is to advance the law to provide maximum protection for individuals fleeing persecution in line with the United States’ international obligations and ensure that the due process rights of refugees and other immigrants are upheld.
