2023 Survey Results on Adherence to ABA Unaccompanied Children Standards

In August 2023, the American Bar Association’s (ABA) Commission on Immigration (COI) and the ABA Children’s Immigration Law Academy (CILA) conducted a national survey to assess compliance with the ABA Standards for the Custody, Placement, and Care; Legal Representation; and Adjudication of Unaccompanied Children in the United States (ABA UC Standards). 

The goal of the 2023 survey was to gather information on whether and to what extent federal agencies, government contractors, practitioners, and adjudicators are adhering to the practices recommended in the ABA UC Standards five years after the last revision in 2018.
