The Immigration Legal Assistance Project


 

Volunteer Information: You must be a member of the Los Angeles County Bar Association to volunteer with the Immigration Project

The Immigration Legal Assistance Project accepts the following volunteers; attorney volunteers, law school graduates waiting for bar results, law school graduates preparing for the bar examination, and students currently attending law school. Attorneys may be licensed in any state. Neither law students nor attorneys need experience in immigration law. We ask only an interest or willingness to learn.

The Project asks for a commitment by volunteers of one day per week for at least a 12-week period. No more than 10-12 volunteers are accepted during this time period. Our office hours are Monday – Friday from 8:00 am to Noon, and 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. Many volunteer only in the morning, some in the afternoon, and others all day. The Project is very flexible and will try to accommodate the volunteer's schedule.

Volunteers will have a very "hands on" learning experience in immigration law and procedures. Volunteers will be trained to fill out and organize USCIS packages for green card applications, work permits, citizenship, travel permits, etc. They will also learn the workings of the US Citizenship and Immigration Service's Los Angeles District Office and the California Service Center.

Volunteers will be working directly with clients who come to the Project on a walk-in basis. The Project sees over 12,000 persons per year, most of them low income and some are homeless. It's a wonderful opportunity to help a community in dire need of quality immigration legal services.

If interested in volunteering, please submit the following form. Or you may call Mary Mucha, Project Director, at (213) 485-0143 or send an email to mmucha@lacba.org.
