Krsna N. Avila
Krsna is a J.D. and LL.M. candidate for the Class of 2017 at Cornell Law School. Having immigrated to the United States when he was only four months old, Krsna grew up feeling like he belonged in this country, despite his legal status. Before law school, Krsna was able to develop and advance a Legal Services program for a non-profit agency, gain in-depth knowledge of U.S. immigration law and use his knowledge to pursue and gain lawful permanent residency for himself and help others in similar situations. Last summer, Krsna interned at the American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California as a Legal and Policy intern.
