how to write a reference for a friend
Wrote a how to write a reference for a friend letter for a friend of mine who is applying for religious asylum here in the UK. It brings up interesting questions: If you were a judge, what evidence would you look for to be convinced that someone really had the beliefs they were claiming to have? If your friends and acquaintances were to write a reference letter about you, what would evidence would they cite? And would a judge be persuaded to grant you asylum based on what they wrote?
