The Project

Adriana represented unaccompanied children in immigration proceedings while working to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the immigration court in Newark, New Jersey. Very frequently, the individuals who need legal representation the most are often the ones who cannot afford it. This project is important because it aims to address that problem. No children should be forced to appear in court unrepresented.
