This weeks topic is heartbreaking. There are over 60,000 children looking for lawyers to represent them in immigration court. Most of these children will be seeking asylum, as most were escaping violent and tragic situations. Not only is it crucial to find lawyers looking to volunteer their time but also to find attorneys willing to be trained in immigration law. These children are scared of what their futures hold and normally do not tell their full story to the attorney representing them. Even though the stakes are high, it’s the most rewarding work you can do. If you are interested in finding out more how you can help please check out Kids in Need of Defense.
