The Project

Over 200,000 immigrants are detained throughout the U.S. each year. The majority lack access to counsel. My project aims to provide and expand access to legal counsel for detained immigrants in the Los Angeles area. In order to achieve this aim, I teach a legal orientation class to immigration detainees, provide individual consults for people who lack representation, and identify those with meritorious claims for relief. I provide direct representation as well as facilitate representation by pro bono counsel.
