While many students opt to use their spring break to relax from the rigors of class work, more than 10 students from the University of Connecticut School of Law spent their time in Pennsylvania helping detained asylum seekers build compelling cases to eventually present to immigration judges.
The idea is not novel, but part of a growing trend for attorneys and law students to head to places—often border states—to help detained immigrants seek asylum. Law professors Jon Bauer and Anna Cabot were inspired by the efforts being made elsewhere and applied the same concept to UConn. Instead of the southern states, though, they went to Pennsylvania at a detention center just outside of York during the third week of March.
