Every year thousands of refugees use the legal system to immigrate to the United States. Through RASP, many law students contribute to refugees' cases by providing translation services and creating country reports to support their claims. Few students, however, ever hear the client's full story. This lunch will be an opportunity for students to hear about the experience of an Iraqi refugee who recently resettled in the Durham area. He will discuss his work as a translator for the U.S. Marine Corp. in Iraq; the process through which he gained refugee status; and his experience so far in America. Lunch will be served. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
