The Contributions of Immigrants to the Teton County Economy 

The Center for International Human Rights Law & Advocacy (CIHRLA) at the University of Wyoming College of Law, in collaboration with New American Economy (NAE), produced a report on the contributions of immigrants to the Teton County economy. The report combines quantitative and qualitative data measuring the contributions of immigrants to Teton County, including their participation in the workforce and key economic sectors, and identifies challenges to their full social and economic participation.

Faculty Supervisor: Noah Novogrodsky


The International Human Rights Clinic at the COL was founded in 2013 as a pillar of the University of Wyoming’s Center for International Human Rights Law & Advocacy.  The clinic is supported by a dedicated endowment and features advocacy directed by faculty supervisors, as well as a classroom component.  The clinic’s international human rights advocacy has included:

  • Litigating a path-breaking maternal mortality case before the Constitutional Court in Uganda;
  • Conducting an investigation into trafficking and modern day slavery in the Southeast Asian seafood industry;
  • Providing a report to immigration judges on country conditions in Ethiopia;
  • Research into the torture of dissidents in Bahrain; and
  • An investigation into oil governance practices in East Africa.

Closer to home, the clinic has successfully represented dozens of asylum seekers, the clinic drafted an influential amicus brief in the 2015 Supreme Court case concerning same-sex marriage, Obergefell v. Hodges, and the clinic has researched an drafted an economic analysis of the contributions of immigrants to Teton County.

 * All clinics are subject to change in terms of content, caseload, and specific course focus in any given year.
