International Refugee Assistance Project

The International Refugee Assistance Project (IRAP) works to organize law students and lawyers to develop and enforce legal and human rights for refugees and displaced persons.[1] It was originally a project of the Urban Justice Center in New York City, founded and directed by Becca Heller.[2] On December 23, 2018, IRAP became an independent 501(c)(3) organization.[3]

IRAP has offices in New York City, Jordan, and Lebanon.[4] IRAP is a plaintiff in International Refugee Assistance Project v. Trump and co-counsel in Darweesh v. Trump.[5]
