What We Do

Our Fellows join proven host organizations – with established connections to underrepresented communities – where they can make a difference for immigrants in greatest need of legal services.
We train our Fellows to become experts in immigration law, providing comprehensive skills development and sharing practices across a powerful network of partner organizations and alumni.
