PRO BONO MENTORSHIP & SUPPORT
Through our three pro bono leads - Asian Pacific Islander Legal Outreach, Kids in Need of Defense, and Legal Services for Children -- we provide mentorship and case support to pro bono attorneys who want to support immigrant children and families. Pro bono attorneys are also able to access the expertise of the Immigrant Legal Resource Center and Center for Gender and Refugee Studies. These pro bono programs increase the collaborative’s capacity to serve individuals threatened by removal from the United States. Our mentorship to members of the private bar also allows attorneys who specialize in other practice areas to engage with the immigrant community and further support our vision of universal representation and the protection of due process rights in the Immigration Courts.
