Community HeLP Clinic assists with understanding public charge ground of inadmissibility

Wednesday, April 15, 2020

The Community Health Law Partnership Clinic recently conducted a live online workshop exploring recent changes to the public charge ground of inadmissibility and what it means for low-income noncitizens seeking legal status in the United States, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic. Third-year law student Andrea G. Aldana, second-year law student James C. Berrigan and clinic Director Jason A. Cade presented and fielded questions from more than 40 UGA School of Social Work students and faculty as well as local community social workers. Hosted by the School of Social Work, the workshop was moderated by Assistant Professor Jane McPherson, who is the director of the school's Global Engagement Program.
