An International Human Right to Free Legal Counsel for Unaccompanied and Separated Children in U.S. Immigration Proceedings

B. STRUCTURE

Section II of this memorandum introduces excerpts from international law and commentary directly or indirectly applicable to the provision of free legal counsel for unaccompanied and separated children in civil proceedings. This serves as background to the discussion in Section III on how the identified law and commentary could be utilized to support attempts to promote a right to free legal counsel for unaccompanied and separated children navigating immigration proceedings in the United States.
