Illinois Legal Aid Online
The National Immigrant Justice Center provides legal services to detained unaccompanied immigrant children, many of whom arrive in this country with no one to protect them. Global social and political crises have also generated waves of immigrants (including unaccompanied children) from many countries including those in Africa, Central and Latin America, the Balkans, and Asia. Unaccompanied immigrant children who do not know the language, have no understanding of the legal system, and have been abandoned by their families are even more at risk of not having their rights protected if they do not have legal representation. Legal services are critical to the protection of their rights and well being. Most pro bono attorneys do asylum cases or help minors obtain Special Immigrant Juvenile status. This training will equip attorneys to handle such cases.
