Pro Bono and Volunteer Opportunities

Pro Bono and Volunteer Opportunities

The IJP relies on dedicated pro bono attorneys and volunteers. We are always in need of volunteers, law student interns, translators, and experience immigration practitioners. All IJP attorneys are provided with technical assistance, including sample materials, an experienced immigration attorney mentor, and are invited to attend all IJP trainings.

We are looking for:

  • Volunteers to take on pro bono cases at both the immigration court and appellate levels.
  • Law student interns to assist attorneys in screening clients, conducting legal and factual research and writing motions and briefs in support of ongoing court cases.
  • Translators who are able to conduct volunteer translation in any language. We have frequent need for individuals who speak Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese, Tagalog, Somali, Arabic, Pulaar, and Creole.
  • Experienced immigration practitioners who are willing to train and mentor volunteer attorneys.
