Miller Mayer immigration attorney Steve Yale-Loehr, who also co-directs the Cornell asylum appeals clinic, was quoted by Cornell Law School News in “Asylum and Convention Against Torture Appellate Clinic Celebrates 20th Anniversary.” Mr. Yale-Loehr said, “Because of the complexity of immigration law, it is very hard to win asylum for someone. We are fortunate that we have excellent students who work tirelessly to save their clients from persecution or torture.” He also said, “The clinic has been a highlight of my legal career. I feel honored to have worked with so many excellent students over the years to help persecuted people win asylum and start a new life in the US.” Over 20 years, the article notes, about 200 students have represented close to 100 clients. In a system where the vast majority of asylum seekers lose their appeals, the clinic has won an estimated 66 percent of its cases. Read the article here.
