aaldef's deferred acton for childhood arrival pro bono training, september 5

This is attorneys in the New York area... As you know, the Department of Homeland Security is now accepting applications for Deferred Action Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which gives eligible undocumented youth a two-year pause from the threat of deportation and an opportunity to secure a work permit.

The Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund is seeking pro bono counsel to represent eligible young people applying for DACA. No prior legal experience is required. These cases will help support the work of AALDEF's youth group for undocumented Asian Americans.

No prior legal experience is required, but pro bono counsel will be required to attend a training prior to taking a case. If you're interested in taking a DACA case through AALDEF, join the training on September 5:
