This summer, a classmate approached me in the library to ask whether Gardner & Mendoza would consider taking on an asylum case pro-bono. The case involved a Christian convert who feared returning to his home country which has apostasy laws. After preparing research and collecting evidence, I was able to successfully pitch the case to the firm’s Immigration partner. Could it be possible that this case is the reason I had to stay and intern in Virginia Beach as opposed to another country this summer?
