Pro Bono Attorneys and Law Students
Volunteer services are vital to our St. Frances Cabrini Center for Immigrant Legal Assistance’s ability to provide high-quality immigration legal services to the Houston community.
Pro Bono Attorneys
Cabrini Center seeks the assistance of pro bono attorneys for both litigation and administrative cases.
- Asylum cases, both affirmatively through the Houston Asylum Office and defensively with the Immigration Court
- Special Immigrant Juvenile Status cases, for juveniles who have been abandoned or abused by their parents in their home countries
- Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)* cases, for domestic violence survivors to self-petition for immigration benefits
- T Visa cases, for victims of human trafficking
- U Visa cases, for victims of serious crimes
- Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, for young people brought to the United States as children
, and complete the Pro Bono Attorney application.
Cabrini Center also relies on volunteers who are law students. Law students are exposed to the full spectrum of Cabrini Center’s immigration caseload. Cabrini Center accepts law student volunteers during the summer and during the school year.
