Immigrant Justice Corps: : Justice Fellowship Application Now Open!! Class of 2019
Immigrant Justice Corps (“IJC”), is the nation’s first and only immigration legal fellowship program. IJC seeks to expand access to counsel by increasing the quantity of immigration lawyers and the quality of the immigration bar. Each year IJC recruits talented young lawyers (“Justice Fellows”) and college graduates (“Community Fellows”) many of whom are first-generation immigrants and bi-lingual graduates from the country’s top universities, for a two-year fellowship. IJC trains Fellows to be experts in immigration law and pairs them with leading non-profit legal services providers and community–based organizations in New York City, Long Island, the Lower Hudson Valley, Upstate New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Texas, Maryland, Virginia and Florida to provide legal services to low income immigrants. IJC is exploring expansion to California, Georgia, Nevada and Pennsylvania as well.
The Fellows provide a broad range of immigration services including deportation defense, applications for asylum, naturalization, green cards and other forms of relief available to juveniles and victims of crime, domestic violence or human trafficking. Quality legal assistance allows immigrants to avoid deportation and separation of families. Immigrants who can improve their legal status are better able to gain lawful employment, receive financial aid to college, access health care and live stable, productive lives in the United States.
IJC is infusing the legal profession with a new generation of lawyers and advocates committed to providing high quality representation and innovative thinking about the delivery of legal services to a vulnerable population, including the use of new technologies.
