Professor Vastine’s Service to Immigrants Honored by Catholic Legal Services
St. Thomas Law’s Immigration Clinic Director, Professor Michael Vastine has been recognized, along with the law school’s Immigration Clinic, by the Archdiocese of Miami and awarded the Mother Cabrini Medal for outstanding service to immigrants. The award is inspired by St. Francis Xavier Cabrini, herself an immigrant from Italy, who dedicated her life to serving newly-arrived immigrants. Her life embodied the notion that immigrants are not a problem to be solved, but people to be helped.
