Volunteer Lawyer Training Program

RMIAN trains volunteer attorneys to represent men and women in immigration detention and immigrant children through annual Continuing Legal Education (CLE) programs, smaller supplemental trainings, and ongoing mentoring. RMIAN’s staff members and RMIAN’s Pro Bono Mentoring Panel provide ongoing mentoring to volunteer attorneys. Metro Volunteer Lawyers generously provides professional liability insurance to all RMIAN volunteer attorneys.

This program works to:

  • Recruit, train, and mentor dedicated volunteer lawyers to represent detained men and women, and children in immigration removal proceedings.
  • Maintain an effective case referral system with engaged and knowledgeable pro bono attorneys
  • Share best practices with other legal service organizations who rely on pro bono assistance
