Professor Buys regularly leads groups of student and faculty volunteers to the Tri-County Detention Center in Ullin, Illinois, where they conduct a Know Your Rights presentation to immigration detainees and conduct individual intake interviews to assess the detainees’ legal needs. Professor Buys also works with small groups of students to provide legal representation to asylum applicants on a pro bono basis and conducts naturalization workshops for persons interested in becoming U.S. citizens.
