- Individual Case Placement
The demand for low or no-cost immigration legal services always exceeds ILS’s capacity, and we need pro bono attorneys to help represent the underserved immigrant population. ILS Pro Bono Attorneys provide representation to pre-screened asylum seekers, survivors of domestic violence/trafficking/sexual assault, victims of crime and unaccompanied immigrant minors.
