New York City Council Honors St. John’s Immigration Clinic

On April 18th, the New York City Council honored St. John’s Refugee and Immigrant Rights Litigation Clinic.  Coinciding with Immigrant Heritage Week, Council Member Daniel Dromm, Speaker Christine Quinn and the entire City Council presented the Clinic with a Proclamation stating, in part, that:  

The Council of the City of New York is proud to honor the St. John’s School of Law Refugee and Immigrant Rights Clinic for its outstanding service to immigrants in New York City: and . . .

The St. John’s School of Law Refugee and Immigrant Rights Clinic represents some of the neediest and most challenging cases before the Department of Homeland Security and Immigration Courts; and . . .

The work of the Refugee and Immigrant Rights Clinic on these cases is often groundbreaking and precedential, impacting immigration cases not just in New York City but across the country: and . . .

The Refugee and Immigrant Rights Clinic provides experiential learning to law students, many of whom go on to serve as prominent immigration attorneys and leading advocates for immigration reform; . . .   

Congratulations to our Refugee and Immigrant Rights Litigation Clinic, Clinic Directors Mario Russell and Mark von Sternberg, and all the clinic students for their great work.
