The ABA Student Lawyer magazine, November/December 2019 issue, featured three 2L students for their pro bono work at the Dilley Pro Bono Project at the South Texas Family Residential Center in Dilley, Texas.

Ruth Campbell, Michelle Ganow-Jones, and Jessica Gutierrez shared their work preparing women and their children at the detention center for their credible fear interviews with asylum officers.

“One of the most gratifying parts of the week was seeing a client walk out of the room feeling empowered to tell her story to the asylum officer,” said Ganow-Jones.
