Law Professor Submits Friend of the Court Brief

Posted Wed, 09 Nov 2016 12:32:00 -0800

Kate Evans, associate professor of Law, submitted an amici curiae brief on behalf of eight leading international refugee law scholars from five different countries to the Board of Immigration Appeals. The brief addressed the proper interpretation of one of the disqualifying grounds in U.S. asylum law and is derived from Evans' research. The case is on remand following the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Negusie v. Holder in which the Court instructed the immigration agency to more fully consider the circumstances in which an individual who otherwise qualifies for refugee protection can be barred under U.S. law. This brief was one of three coordinated responses to the Supreme Court's directive and will further guide the immigration agency in its application of refugee law. You can download the brief here.
