Third year USD Law student, and member of USD’s Appellate Law Clinic, Colin Davies, represented a political refugee in a case before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. An immigration court had denied the client’s application for protected status as a political refugee, despite her fears for her family’s safety in her native country of Guatemala. Under the supervision of USD Law Professors Michael Devitt and Katherine Mangan, third year student Colin Davies presented the appeal to the court.
Congratulations to Colin! And thank you for the inspiration to include pro bono activities in our legal practices.
