Henna Pithia is a Visiting Assistant Clinical Professor of Law with the International Human Rights Clinic. Pithia graduated from USC Gould in May 2015. During her time at USC Gould, she worked with the Iraqi Refugee Assistance Project, UN High Commissioner for Refugees, and the International Human Rights Clinic (“IHRC”). During her time with the IHRC, she advocated for human trafficking survivors, asylum applicants, and Unaccompanied Minors arriving at the US/Mexico border. Pithia found her Clinical experience so meaningful that she stayed on as the Clinic’s first Teaching Fellow after graduation. In this position, she continued to hone her clinical skills and continued assisting asylum seekers and trafficking survivors in Los Angeles. Thereafter, Pithia became an Asylum Officer with United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. As an Asylum Officer, Pithia adjudicated affirmative asylum and Credible/Reasonable Fear applications. Pithia most recently spent time in Canada and Southern California working with immigration firms focused on employment and family based immigration processes. Pithia is extremely excited to return to the Clinic and be part of the Clinic’s meaningful and critical work.
