On Saturday, June 20, 2015, the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) and their local Washington, DC Chapter have partnered with some local charities to offer free immigration law services. The event is AILA’s fifth annual Pro Bono Clinic which is being held in conjunction with AILA’s 2015 Annual Conference on Immigration Law! This Free Legal Clinic will take place in Washington, D.C. at Carlos Rosario International Public Charter School. There will be dozens of Immigration Attorneys from around the country available to answer questions and assess each participant case as it pertains to Immigration Law.
AILA Executive Director Crystal Williams stated, “The Washington, DC, area is both historic and vibrant; it’s a place where immigrants have flourished and where the three branches of our government make, execute, and rule on policies affecting immigrants. We welcome the chance to join our partners in offering knowledge and expertise to help families and individuals in the area,”
All interested individuals are encouraged to attend this event, including members of the press. Immigrants interested in speaking with an attorney are encouraged to sign up in advance.
