Finding Refuge


The James E. and Sarah A. Degan Professor of Law and director of the Program in Refugee and Asylum Law (PRAL) at Michigan Law, Hathaway is one of a small number of globally regarded refugee law experts. He has helped to develop Michigan Law into a center of scholarship and education in the field.

The scope of PRAL is vast: the world's most comprehensive program for the study of international and comparative refugee law, with courses and workshops, worldwide refugee-and asylum-related fellowships, a biennial colloquium that sets guidelines for the evolution of refugee law, and the Refugee Caselaw Site, the world's leading site for access to and debate about the precedents on refugee law issued in more than 30 asylum countries.
