Ray Ausrotas Provides Support For Pro Bono Attorneys Handling Asylum Matters In South Texas


Ray Ausrotas, Arrowood LLP partner, provided a video presentation in support of pro bono attorneys at the border of South Texas aiding individuals there who are seeking asylum in the United States.

The South Texas Pro Bono Asylum Representation Project (ProBAR) is a project of the American Bar Association that provides legal information, pro se assistance and pro bono representation to thousands of immigrants and asylum-seekers in the Rio Grande valley each year.

Founded in 1989 in response to the overwhelming need for pro bono legal representation of Central American asylum-seekers detained in South Texas, ProBAR has a long history of providing critical legal services to people at risk of deportation.

Mr. Ausrotas recorded a lecture outlining key areas of focus for direct and cross examination of witnesses in contested proceedings, which was provided and made available for the use of ProBAR going forward.
