Iraq Refugee Assistance Project (IRAP)
President: Aseel Barghuthi [email]
The Iraqi Refugee Assistance Project (IRAP) is a national student-led organization founded by law students at Yale University in 2007. IRAP provides legal representation and policy advocacy on behalf of Iraqi refugees and other vulnerable populations in the Middle East and beyond. The organization now has over a dozen law school chapters nation-wide, including a chapter at the University of Jordan in Amman. As a result of IRAP's work, over 400 refugees have been successfully resettled in the United States, Australia, United Kingdom, Sweden, Ireland, and Germany. The GW Law chapter was established in fall 2011.
