The Immigration Legal Assistance Project provides, for a nominal fee, legal assistance and counseling to all categories of low-income persons. The project also provides immigration "services" for the private immigration bar. The project uses its limited resources to:
- Provide immigration legal advice for U.S. Citizens, immigrants, and aliens.
- Prepare immigration and naturalization forms.
- Translate, certify, notarize, and copy documents.
- Tie in lawyer referral service and all appropriate social service agencies.
- Train law students, attorneys, and volunteers in all aspects of immigration law and procedures.
At the 2011 LACBA Installation Dinner, Jack Chihyao Sung received The Honorable Benjamin Aranda III Outstanding Public Service Award because of his volunteer work with the Immigration Legal Assistance Project. An immigrant himself, Jack faced the possibility of deportation because he was aged out of his parents' application. Granted a student visa, he was able to remain in the United States and attend Southwestern University School of Law. Driven by a desire to help immigrants in similar circumstances, he studied Immigration Law and made it his mission to help immigrants have a clear understanding of how the law impacts their lives.
