In The Right Place at The Right Time

By October 13, 2016December 16th, 2019Internship Grant Program, Virginia
The following blog post is from CGJ Natasha Delille, who interned this past summer with Gardner & Mendoza, PC on immigration and protection of children.

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?
