Presented by: Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota and Gray Plant Mooty
The Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota's (ILCM) DREAMer Pro Bono Project is for all interested pro bono attorneys. No immigration experience is necessary.
Gray Plant Mooty is co-hosting a CLE for Pro Bono Week 2012. As part of its DREAMer Pro Bono Project, ILCM trains and mentors attorneys to represent immigrants in their Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) cases. DACA is a new immigration remedy being offered to undocumented immigrant youth.
On June 15, 2012, the Obama Administration announced that deferred action would be offered to certain immigrant youths, often referred to as DREAMers, who have fulfilled certain educational requirements or served in the military, and met other specified conditions. It is estimated that nationwide, as many as 1.4 million people ages 15-30 could potentially benefit from this remedy. In Minnesota alone, the estimates of potentially eligible individuals are in the thousands. Through the DREAMer Project, members of the private bar can help propel exceptional, deserving young adults towards a brand new chapter in the United States.
There is no cost for this CLE. However, attorneys who attend the training agree to accept a pro bono Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals case following the DREAMer Project CLE.
