The Kathryn O. Greenberg Immigration Justice Clinic had a big victory this week when one of their clients, “Mr. L.,” a Jamaican national, won his quest to avoid deportation. He was facing the possibility of torture or death if he returned to Jamaica.

Alexandra Jarymowycz ’18, and Steven Ashur ’17, worked on the case beginning in September 2016. They appealed the deportation order that Mr. L. had received when represented by his previous attorney and won the appeal of that decision from the Board of Immigration Appeals in December 2016.
