Can i go to law school when political asylum pending?

Given that the asylum cases can be pending for hundreds of days, you might be asking questions about what you can do in the US during that time. In particular, do you have the right to attend a school, such as a law school, while your asylum case is pending? The answer is a simple yes.

Once you file your asylum application and USCIS officially notifies you that they noted your application, you can stay in the US on the legal grounds. Therefore, you can go to a law school.

However, you might not receive certain kinds of internship aren’t available for asylum seekers and even some school might refuse you to study at them. File a formal request to the school of you interest to clarify your options.
