Mission

Immigrant Justice Corps’ (IJC) mission is to recruit, train, and populate the immigration field with the highest quality legal advocates to create a new generation of leaders with a lifelong commitment to immigrant justice. IJC is the country’s first and only fellowship program exclusively dedicated to expanding access to quality counsel for low-income immigrants. Since 2014, we have demonstrated that an infusion of young lawyers and advocates levels the playing field and helps immigrants present their viable claims in court. To date, we have trained over 230 Fellows who have served 84,000 clients and their families. Our Fellows have a 90% success rate in closed cases, keeping families together and giving immigrants the opportunity to contribute to their communities.

Justice Fellowship

IJC’s two-year Justice Fellowship identifies promising lawyers who are passionate about immigrants’ rights, places them with organizations where they can make the greatest difference, and supports them with training and expert insights as they directly assist immigrants in need.

Justice Fellows defend immigrants from deportation and work on other complex immigration cases, providing a broad range of aid to their clients – from removal defense to affirmative asylum applications to securing special relief for juveniles and victims of crime, domestic violence, or human trafficking.

Because our Fellows are placed at many different partnering host organizations, their experiences are almost entirely unique. Our host organizations’ practices span the gamut of immigration law specialties, serving an array of communities, working in a range of geographies, and focusing on niche areas of the law.

Full salary and benefits are provided.

Immigrants and migrants

Two-year Community Fellowships are awarded to recent college graduates with the linguistic skills, passion, and cultural competency to work with diverse immigrant communities.

Community Fellows (CF) become partially accredited representatives through the Department of Justice’s Office of Legal Access Programs, allowing them to represent clients in legal matters before the Department of Homeland Security. They are placed in community-based organizations nationwide.

CFs spend most days meeting with clients, conducting legal screenings, and completing applications for immigration benefits. In addition to providing counsel, Fellows engage in advocacy efforts and educate communities about immigration laws. Community Fellows carry their own caseloads and provide a broad range of representation, with the type of assistance depending on their host organization.

Full salary and benefits are provided.
