Volunteer with IFAP – Join Us For Our CLE on October 21, 2011

Volunteer with the Immigrant Families Advocacy Project

The Immigrant Families Advocacy Project (IFAP), in conjunction with the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project (NWIRP), and the University of Washington School of Law, invite you to participate in a Continuing Legal Education program on providing advocacy to immigrant survivors of domestic violence.

IFAP trains and matches law students with pro bono attorneys to provide representation to immigrant survivors of crime and domestic violence who are eligible to obtain lawful immigration status in the U.S. We are looking for pro bono attorneys to volunteer during the 2011-2012 school year.

Attorneys do not need to have experience with immigration law or any specific practice area. Attorneys supervise only one pair of law students on a single case. The Northwest Immigrant Rights Project provides insurance coverage and additional support to pro bono attorneys.

Interested? Register here. The cost is only $35 for attorneys who agree to take a case during the 2011-2012 school year.
