Attorneys, Law Students Train for Pro Bono Asylum Cases for Detained Refugee Moms, Kids in Texas

"For the mothers and children detained at an immigrant facility in Karnes County, about 100 miles south of Austin, their best chance for release is to find attorneys willing to represent them pro bono.  And in turn, the lawyers willing to take on these cases need specific training.  So this week at the University of Texas School of Law, a group of immigration attorneys [and 'regular' attorneys, and law students] attended a training session to brush up on the type of asylum cases faced by the women and children housed at Karnes County Residential Center." - Joy Díaz, KUT, Apr. 21, 2015.  [Note: Our law firm, The Fowler Law Firm, PC, was proud to sponsor the event, providing food and coffee.]
