Article by Eunice Cho Establishes Framework for U-Visa Petitions

Former Skadden fellow Eunice Cho ('10) co-authored a Georgetown Immigration Law Journal article providing a framework for evaluating abuse suffered by immigrant victims of workplace crime in the context of u-visa applications ("A New Understanding of Substantial Abuse: Evaluating Harm in U Visa Petitions for Immigrant Victims of Workplace Crime," June 12). "In recent years, labor and civil rights enforcement agencies have increasingly certified U visa petitions in cases involving victims of workplace crime, but greater clarity is needed on the concept of substantial abuse in this context," the article abstract said.
