Immigration Legal Advice Clinic
In order to address the growing need for legal immigration services in the District, The D.C. Bar Pro Bono Program, along with a number of partners, sponsors an Immigration Legal Advice Clinic to provide free consultations to area residents.
The clinic provides legal information, brief advice, and referral services. Bilingual attorneys and interpreters are available for clients who speak Spanish, Amharic, Chinese and other languages as requested. Visitors to the clinic will be able to receive assistance from volunteer attorneys with civil legal problems governed by federal U.S. immigration laws.
If brief service is not enough to resolve the problem or if a different type of service is required, clinic volunteers will attempt to refer individuals to or provide information about a legal or social service provider appropriately suited to handle the case.
The services at the clinic are provided free of charge. Please bring all of the documents concerning your legal problem to the clinic.
The Immigration Legal Advice Clinic takes place each March, June, September, and December. The clinic operates at the Carlos Rosario International Public Charter School on Saturdays, from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m. located at 1100 Harvard Street NW, Washington, D.C. The next Immigration Clinic will be held on Saturday, March 1, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Special thanks are owed to the following organizations that helped to make the clinic a reality:
- The Asian Pacific American Bar Association of the Greater Washington, D.C. Area, Inc. (APABA-DC)
- Capital Area Immigrants’ Right (CAIR) Coalition
- The Carlos Rosario International Public Charter School
