Immigrant Justice Corps Community Fellowships

Immigrant Justice Corps recruits talented lawyers and college graduates from around the country and partners them with New York’s leading non-profit legal services providers and community-based organizations. Together, they offer a broad range of immigration assistance including naturalization, deportation defense, and affirmative applications for asylum seekers, juveniles, and victims of crime, domestic violence or human trafficking.

Community Fellows are recent college graduates who conduct outreach and legal intake in neighborhoods throughout New York City and the surrounding counties. They screen low income immigrants for legal relief, and help them file applications for citizenship, green cards, DACA, and more.

Community Fellows become Board of Immigration Appeals accredited representatives. Their work is directly supervised by experienced immigration attorneys.

Community Fellowships are available to students who are completing their undergraduate degree or have recently completed it. Applicants must speak a language in addition to English, and must be committed to immigrant justice.Languages that are particularly useful include Spanish, French, and Mandarin as well as Arabic and Urdu.
