Law student Karen Hindley sat in on the first session in May.
She said: “It’s one thing to read about people you don’t know and their immigration battles in newspapers, but another to be faced with the reality of a family’s suffering and tragedy.
“With immigration cases, the fear and the instability are a constant presence and it is extremely satisfying to help people get a visa and make them feel safe.”
