Description

The definition of a particular social group remains one of the most complicated topics in asylum law, particularly in light of recent case law and a federal circuit split. This CLE will begin with a brief overview of 7th Circuit case law, and it will include a discussion of gang-related asylum cases, gender-based asylum claims, and victims of domestic violence. It will also include guidance on how to formulate a particular social group in your asylum case.
