Pro Bono Network (PBN) partners with National Immigrant Justice Center (NIJC) to provide volunteers, working with a partner, who meet with clients and prepare U Visa applications for immigrant survivors of serious crimes.
For more information, visit NIJC’s volunteer opportunity. Volunteers will conduct one long client interview, then have a couple of meetings with your partner in putting the filing together.
PBN partners with legal aid agencies to expand, adapt, and create pro bono opportunities, such as this one, that are flexible, completed within shorter time frames, allow for work in pairs, and provide malpractice insurance.
About the Organization
Pro Bono Network (PBN) partners with existing legal aid agencies to expand or adapt pro bono programs that will fit within the time constraints of stay-at-home parents.
To that end, any project the Network adopts must satisfy several essential criteria:
- The agency must provide early morning training in the suburbs;
- hours must be flexible and no required appearances after 2:00pm;
- the time-frames must be discreet or allow the attorney to work for a short-time frame;
- attorneys must be allowed to work in pairs to ensure back up when the inevitable sick-child situation arises; and
- the agency must provide malpractice insurance.
We work closely with the legal aid agency to keep the project running smoothly for our volunteers. We assist with supervising, mentoring, administrative matters, troubleshooting, and ongoing training.
