USCRI's Immigrant Children's Legal Program
USCRI’s Immigrant Children's Legal Program (formerly the National Center for Refugee and Immigrant Children) works with over 275 law firms and thousands of attorneys throughout the U.S. to provide unaccompanied immigrant children with pro bono legal representation in their immigration proceedings. Without adequate representation, children are unable to make claims for asylum, trafficking protection, or other relief for which they may be eligible.
In addition to mentoring individual pro bono attorneys, the Immigrant Children's Legal Program (ICLP) conducts trainings and maintains updated materials on immigration law at USCRI’s online resource library. ICLP has conducted migration awareness workshops in Mexico and Central America and hosted international conferences on child immigration issues.
To date, ICLP has made a difference in the immigration cases of over 7,500 children.
