Insights: In the News Firms Join Together in Asylum Program

Law Week Colorado

A group of law firms have been working with the Rocky Mountain Immigrant Advocacy Network in a first-of-its-kind program to help asylum seekers, and so far, it seems to be working.

Davis Graham & Stubbs, Gibson Dunn, Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton and Wilmer Hale have partnered with the immigration legal aid organization to offer assistance on a recurring and rotating basis to asylum seekers who are preparing for interviews that can determine whether they’re allowed to stay in the U.S. For RMIAN, having that constant flow of volunteers allows it to serve more people with less time spent training attorneys. The early results of the Preparing Asylum Seekers for Success, or PASS program, means it might soon be replicated in other parts of the country.
