New resources are now available here for attorneys representing asylum clients who need to argue for an exception to the one-year filing deadline for asylum applications.  Resources include sample briefs and recent unpublished Board of Immigration Appeals' decisions finding exceptions to the one-year deadline based on an applicant's mental and physical health, an applicant's "coming out," and changes in the applicant's country of origin.

Additional sample briefs and other documents are available here for NIJC pro bono attorneys who are registered users.
