Remote Pro Bono Bond Representation Teams

Description:

With the help of legal representation, detained immigrants are four times more likely to successfully argue their case for release on bond and return to their families while they prepare their legal case against deportation. By volunteering with the remote bond team, you will remotely represent at least one detained immigrant at his or her bond hearing. Local legal service providers can visit the client at the detention center to get documents signed and provide other case support. Our program will support you with training and templates, as well as mentorship provided by a full-time, experienced Supervising Attorney dedicated to this project. 

Time and Place:

Volunteers will sign up for any three-month period during which they will offer to represent at least one detained immigrant at his or her bond hearing. That is the extent of your volunteer commitment. All of the work can be done remotely. 

Special Skills Needed:

  • Must complete comprehensive online bond course
  • No prior knowledge of immigration law is required
  • Lawyers as well as interpreters and other supporting volunteers are needed

Organization:

The Immigration Justice Campaign, Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc. (CLINIC), and Northwest Immigrant Rights Project (NWIRP)
