Emily Ngara

Emily Torstveit Ngara, LLM '14, has been hired to direct Georgia's first immigration law clinic, which will be funded by the Kresge Foundation at Georgia State University College of Law.

Read the Law.Com story HERE.

From the Law.Com article:

"The clinic will focus on deportation defense for immigrants facing ICE removal orders and assist those whose Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or temporary protected status has been rescinded.

“A large number of those will likely be asylum cases, given the current situation,” Ngara said.

The asylum grant rate from the Atlanta Immigration Court is one of the lowest in the country, which makes providing legal representation to those facing deportation even more critical, Ngara said."

(Our thanks to alumna Lisa Krisher, '78, longtime Litigation Director for Georgia Legal Services, who wrote, "I’m excited by the news that a UDC alum is the head of a much needed immigration clinic at GA State Law, the first in GA." when forwarding the link to this article.)
