AILA MAP enlists experienced AILA lawyers to assist service members on a pro bono basis. Volunteer attorneys are matched with military personnel stationed around the globe. AILA MAP has assisted in more than 450 military cases, covering all branches of service and running the gamut of immigration law. Over 300 AILA attorneys serve as volunteers. For more information, please contact AILA Practice and Professionalism Center Coordinator, Michelle Singleton at

The National Veterans Legal Services Program (NVLSP) has been the voice of veterans’ rights for more than 25 years. NVLSP is an independent, non-profit, charitable organization acting to ensure that the U.S. government honors the pact made with our 25 million veterans.

We serve these forgotten men and women through:

  • Advocacy and Training
  • Education and Publications
  • Pro Bono Litigation

As a conduit for change against unfair government practices, NVLSP has been instrumental in the passage of landmark veterans’ rights legislation. Lawsuits brought by NVLSP attorneys have forced the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to pay hundreds of millions of dollars in benefits to veterans and their families.

NVLSP also recruits, trains, and assists thousands of volunteer lawyers and veterans’ advocates. And our publications empower veterans, their families and their advocates to obtain the benefits they’re entitled to by clearly outlining their rights under the law.
