Celebrating a great year with Safe Passage Clinic Students

Safe Passage, April 29, 2016

On Thursday, April 28th, Professors Benson and Thomas celebrated the last class of the semester with an outing to the Second Circuit Court of Appeals to hear oral arguments in the asylum case of Zelaya de Ceron v. Holder. Heather Axford, Senior Staff Attorney at Central American Legal Assistance (CALA), who argued for the petitioner, was a guest speaker on gang-based asylum cases to the class in the fall semester and will be teaching Refugee and Asylum Law at NYLS during the spring semester of 2017. After the arguments, Professor Benson treated students to a coffee over a discussion of the issues presented in the case and a celebration for a great year advocating on behalf of immigrant kids.
