Published 10 days ago

Immigrant Defenders Law Center (“ImmDef”), a next-generation, 501(c)(3) social justice law firm that defends our immigrant communities against injustices in the immigration court system. We believe that the right to counsel in deportation proceedings is a necessary step towards ensuring due process for all. It is our long-term goal to ensure that no immigrant is forced to go to court alone. To that end, ImmDef is seeking applications to host an Equal Justice Work Fellow for the 2022-2023 Fellowship Term. ImmDef has a particular interest in hosting a Fellow/Project that will focus on cross border issues, including the issues related to the former Migration Protection Protocols Program (“MPP”), Title 42, detention advocacy issues affecting the cross-border region, and projects related to the defense of Black migrants and protection of families and children at the border.


Fellow will be based out of ImmDef’s San Diego office and must be a third-year law student, a recent law school graduate looking to begin a public interest career. Your law school must be an Equal Justice Works member law school at the time you apply. Fellow must be organized, ready to jump into the complex world of immigration law and litigation and be committed to ImmDef’s social justice framework for working with communities at the border. A fellow fluent in Spanish or other language is strongly preferred.
