(as of January 2019)
Since April 2017, we have sent out volunteer lawyers each week to Athens, where they have been working closely with adult and child refugees on their asylum claims and applications for reunion with family members elsewhere in Europe. So far, over 450 refugees have received free legal assistance from more than 65 volunteer lawyers.
From May 2018 – end June 2019:
-We undertook 181 cases
-We assisted more than 600 individuals
-We delivered 9 training sessions and 12,320 hours of work
-70% of the final decisions on the asylum claims of RLS clients are positive resulting in either refugee status or subsidiary protection (Greek average 49.6%)
