The Immigration Legal Assistance Project


 

Volunteer Information

The Immigration Legal Assistance Project accepts attorney volunteers only or students currently attending law school.  Attorneys may be licensed in any state or waiting for the results of the bar examination.  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 attorney volunteers of one day per week for at least a 12-week period.  No more than 10 volunteer attorneys are accepted during this time. Our office hours are from 8:00 am to Noon, and 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.  Many attorneys volunteer only in the morning, some in the afternoon, and others all day.  The Project is very flexible and will try to accommodate the attorney’s schedule.  Law student hours are controlled by the number of hours and credits they need to pursue according to their clinical director at the law school.  There is no limit as to the amount of law students the Project will accept.

Volunteers will learn immigration law and procedures.  They will be trained to put together 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 into the Project on a walk-in basis.  The Project sees over nearly 7,500 persons per year, most of them low income.  It is a chance to help the community and help yourself.

If interested in volunteering, please submit the following form.  Or you may call Mary Mucha, Project Director, at (213) 485-0143.
