Description: IRAP was created to respond to the present refugee crisis, and to help alleviate the unique challenges suffered by Iraqi refugees who are seeking protection and resettlement in the United States. This work has expanded beyond Iraq and now IRAP assists refugees from many Middle Eastern countries and parts of Africa. IRAP's work includes legal assistance for refugees seeking resettlement from abroad, policy advocacy to improve U.S. policy toward the refugee crisis, and direct assistance to ease the transition of newly resettled refugees to American life. Students will work in pairs under the supervision of attorneys from several firms, including Bingham, McCutchen LLP; Irell & Manella LLP; Jones Day; and R & S Law Group LLP.
