The Children’s Immigration Law Academy (CILA) is a project of the American Bar Association. The fabulous CILA team is growing! We currently have 7 staff members in Texas, 1 in Illinois, and 1 in California.
We are excited to expand our team and further support advocates across the country who work with immigrant youth. Through CILA’s work, we hope to ensure more children are represented and to provide the resources and expertise needed by those who endeavor to represent them. CILA builds capacity for those working to advance the rights of children seeking protection through trainings, resources, technical assistance, and collaboration.
We currently have four open positions. CILA plans to add two staff attorneys, a managing social worker, and a program coordinator to the CILA team. We welcome you to apply to CILA by clicking on the below links to learn more about the positions and specific job requirements.
The staff attorneys and managing social worker may reside in any of seven states: California, Illinois, Indiana, DC, Maryland, Virginia, or Texas. For candidates outside of the greater Houston area, the positions are fully remote.
