Description: This summer, we all watched as the flood of unaccompanied minors migrating to the United States, many of whom are fleeing violence, persecution, abuse, or trafficking, became a humanitarian crisis.  Most of these children are unrepresented and face deportation, especially with the recent order by the Executive Office of Immigration Review to accelerate hearings for Central American children.  Going through immigration proceedings without legal help is daunting, even under the best of circumstances.  The crisis shined a renewed spotlight on our broken immigration system, and how the dysfunction negatively impacts both children and adults.
Join us as leading practitioners and advocates provide an overview of current legal issues and a timely update about initiatives to support and reform our immigration system. They will also explore how pro bono lawyers can get involved and provide examples of pro bono engagements that range from individual representations to fact-gathering to policy advocacy to impact litigation and system re-design.
