Outline of United States Asylum Law: Substantive Criteria and Procedural Concerns: The purpose of this memorandum is to offer a short outline of some significant issues in asylum law for the benefit of volunteer lawyers seeking to represent asylum seekers in quasi-judicial proceedings before the Executive Office for Immigration Review. Its objective is not to provide a complete discussion of these questions, but merely to indicate that such issues do arise and to cite relevant authority wherein the question is discussed.
