Pro Bono Representation with HIAS in Maryland: Volunteer Attorney Orientation
Please RSVP to Kerry Honan at firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend the orientation.
Are you an attorney licensed in Maryland? Come learn how to protect displaced child migrants in need. HIAS’ team of experienced legal advocates will orient you on what it means to be a HIAS pro bono attorney, while situating your work in the broader Jewish response to the global refugee crisis. During the session you will learn about the types of children who need your representation and about the mentorship we offer to volunteers. Light refreshments will be served.
Following the orientation, attorneys who are interested in representing one of HIAS’ clients will be guided through our volunteer application process and then invited to our immigration law training on “Special Immigrant Juvenile Status” (SIJS).
