Pro Bono Program (U.S.)
To find out more and get involved in any of the opportunities below, please fill out this form.
HIAS works with a generous network of pro bono attorneys - both locally through our headquarters in NY and Silver Spring, MD, and across the country - to provide legal services to asylum seekers, asylees, and others who are seeking humanitarian relief.
In NYC and DC, HIAS engages pro bono attorneys to help with short term and discrete projects, including adjustment of status applications. HIAS' pro bono attorneys also engage in direct representation of clients, including in asylum and Special Immigrant Juvenile Status cases.
Nationally, HIAS also engages lawyers across the country to engage in pro bono legal work through volunteer delegation trips to the US/Mexico border, and in remote representation of asylum seekers in appealing the denial of their asylum claims.
Pro bono attorneys receive ongoing support from HIAS in the form of mentoring and access to a library of resources. As part of our effort to provide wraparound services, HIAS also provides pro bono attorneys with connections to its wide network of social services partners so that their clients can benefit from other vital resources while their cases are pending.
We are actively recruiting new Pro Bono Attorneys! If you are interested in participating in any of HIAS' pro bono work, either locally (in the NY or DC metropolitan areas), or nationally, please fill out this form.
*HIAS’ Pro Bono Program in New York City would not be possible without the generous support of the New York Bar Foundation.
