Through our asylum program, we represent individuals from all over the world fleeing political, religious, sexual orientation or gender-based persecution in their home countries.
Much of our asylum program is conducted as part of a clinic in partnership with Columbia Law School. As part of the clinic, two of our lawyers instruct Columbia law students on assisting clients in asylum proceedings and the students work together with teams of Davis Polk lawyers to represent clients in their claims for asylum.
BY THE NUMBERS
Since the clinic’s inception in 1997, we have represented nearly 200 clients seeking asylum and succeeded in every case.
