Representing Asylum-Seekers: Comparing Lawyers' Use of Human Rights Treaties in the US, Canada, and the UK

Professor Stephen Meili is the supervising attorney in the University of Minnesota Law School Immigration and Human Rights Clinic, where students represent asylum-seekers and detained individuals in various immigration and appellate court proceedings. His teaching interests include human rights and immigration law, civil procedure, consumer law, and legal practice. Professor Meili's research interests complement his clinical teaching. His current project, for which he has received grants from the National Science Foundation and the Robina Foundation, is a study of the impact of international human rights treaties on asylum law jurisprudence and practice in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The study includes reading and coding more than 60,000 asylum decisions and interviewing lawyers representing asylum-seekers.
