About IJC and the Fellowship Programs

IJC is the country's first fellowship program wholly dedicated to meeting the need for high-quality legal assistance for immigrants seeking citizenship, other affirmative applications, and fighting deportation. Inspired by the late Chief Judge Robert Katzmann of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, IJC brings together the country's most talented law school and college graduates to provide high quality representation to low-income immigrants. IJC’s two-year Fellowship program connects Fellows to the best legal services providers and community-based institutions nationwide and leverages the latest technologies. The program also fosters a culture of creative thinking that engenders new strategies to reduce the justice gap for immigrant families, ensuring that immigration status is no longer a barrier to social and economic opportunity. The position will report to IJC’s soon to be hired Fellowship Director.

Our Justice Fellows and Community Fellows are recent law graduates and college graduates, respectively, who are committed to providing immigration legal services to under-served populations and who join a new generation of dedicated advocates working to serve immigrant communities. Robust recruitment and selection ultimately enables representation and advocacy before USCIS and EOIR in the pursuit of new strategies to increase access to justice and our mission. Fellows participate in a two-year fellowship either as employees of host organizations or as IJC employees at various sites under the supervision of IJC’s supervising attorneys. This position assists in enhancing Immigrant Justice Corps’ fellowship program and ensures that the organization builds resources and systems to capitalize on IJC’s unique role as the premier immigration and social justice fellowship.
