Unaccompanied Children and the Need for Pro Bono Representation

The numbers speak for themselves.

Thousands of young people in immigration court have no attorney at their side. Representation makes a significant difference in the lives of children facing deportation. Many children have legal relief available that could offer them protection and more security in the United States. The only thing missing is knowledge and guidance to navigate the system.

Below you will find pro bono opportunities nationwide to support children facing deportation. Funded by the Vera Institute of Justice, Pro Bono Matters for Children Facing Deportation allows lawyers to search and share available pro bono cases for unaccompanied children (UC) detained by the federal government or released to live with family members while in deportation proceedings.

Pro tip:  Use the search box to find a case in your city, use the search term “remote” to find opportunities available from anywhere, and “mentorship” if you are looking for a case with support from the legal service provider.  

Want to work with a specific organization?  Select their name from the “partner” list in the filter box to search for available cases.  If you don’t see a match, use the “notify me” box to receive an email when that organization posts another opportunity.
