Among other things, the clinic took part in the legislation reform on the exploitation of workers which was approved in Italy in 2015; the research on judicial decision on migrant detention (http://www.lexilium.it/) has been quoted by international bodies, has led to hearings in front of the Group of Experts on Trafficking of the European Council (Greta) and to a collaboration with the Tribunal of Rome in the preparation of Country of Origin Information in asylum cases (http://protezioneinternazionale.giur.uniroma3.it/il-progetto/). Thanks to its public engagement, the Clinic has received considerable coverage in the print media (see: http://clinicalegale.giur.uniroma3.it/rassegna-stampa/) and on Italian national television (http://clinicalegale.giur.uniroma3.it/783-2/).
