UConn Law Asylum and Human Rights Clinic

39 Elizabeth Street
Hartford, CT 06105-2213

In the Asylum and Human Rights Clinic, law students handle every aspect of representation in high-stakes cases that determine whether a client who has fled from political, religious or other persecution will be allowed to remain permanently in the United States, or face deportation.  In this intensive, one-semester program, students develop their legal skills and learn to exercise professional responsibility and judgment.  They deepen their understanding of human rights issues while providing an essential service to clients desperately in need of representation.
