Asylum Seekers & Refugees

Asylum Seekers & Refugees

Asylum seekers and refugees have a unique status in the justice system that must be understood. They are recipients of legal action that defines their status in the country, and they often need the protection and justice of the system to allow them to succeed here. It is important to recognize that often asylum seekers and refugees do not know where to obtain information and resources that are available to them, thus it is important that their needs and concerns are considered ahead of time.
