Need help w/ INS Immigrations issue for a friend

by dr_philgood2003

I have a good friend who is going through some tough times with her husband. She is in a particular bind as because she is an immigrant herself from Eastern Europe. She has recently passed her citizenship exam and is just waiting to be sworn in as a US citizen.
Unfortunately, she is in an abusive situation right now as her husband is creating an hostile environment... but she can't leave because she recently brought her two sweet children to the US last summer to see if they liked the US. Of course they did, so she put them into school and filed an extension on their visas until she could become an American citizen herself

My summer job advice

by poptart

First, I actually know of only a few students who did not find summer legal work after 1L, so don't despair.
As far as making yourself attractive to specific employers, you need to think about what type of work you want to do. For example, if your interest is immigration, then join the immigration law student society at your school and actually be active in it (if there isn't one, start one), volunteer at a nonprofit that does work with refugees, do research for a professor that works on the issues, etc. In your second year, sign up to take a law clinic at your school, write your student comment on a relevant topic (if you do journal, which I didn't), do internships, etc

How to I go to school in Europe?

I live in America and want to go to school in an English speaking country in Europe, then go to a dentistry school in San Francisco so I need to go somewhere where my degree will mean something in the US. I was wondering if anyone knew what I need to do to go to college there, such as qualifications. And what are good Universities/Colleges in Europe. Thanks for your help :)

American University of Paris where you could major in psychology.
Richmond, the American International University in London also major in psychology.

Both of these will easily transfer to US. You should consider cost though. It might be better to attend university in the us and study abroad during the summer.
