When we identified egregious delays in the Special Immigrant Visa program for those who risked their lives to work alongside U.S. troops, we sued the government in 2015—and won! And, in January of 2017, when the President issued his first executive order, we once again saw the rights of our clients and other refugees and immigrants being violated. With the help of a coalition of lawyers and students, we went back to court. Since then, our litigation work has resulted in relief for thousands of refugees and others.
IRAP’s litigation department brings cases that advance and defend the rights of refugees and other displaced persons. We seek accountability and transparency in government actions. We aim to transform the U.S. and international legal landscapes so that refugees and other displaced persons can find safe passage and realize their aspirations.
We are an innovative and collaborative team that is committed to high standards of quality. We work closely with our clients, colleagues, and community organizations.
