As many of you are aware, the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights (LCCR) has a longstanding program that places asylum cases with pro bono attorneys. Through this program, LCCR has provided representation to hundreds of indigent asylum-seekers each year—the far majority of whom have been successful in their cases. Critical to the program’s success is the contribution of volunteer immigration attorneys, who provide technical assistance to our pro bono attorneys and field procedural questions. This year, LCCR is in great need of additional immigration attorneys who are willing to volunteer their time to guide pro bono attorneys handling asylum cases. Many of our pro bono attorneys continue to take cases long after receiving your guidance on their first asylum claims, and it is a great way to maximize the impact of your expertise in pro bono cases.
If you are interested in volunteering to mentor pro bono asylum cases, please sign up on our website here: http://lccr.com/get-involved/volunteer-opportunities/application-form/ or email LCCR at email@example.com.
