The Student Internship Program:

This is a yearlong program designed to give you an opportunity to work alongside an immigration attorney and paralegals, on real immigration cases. The program will be broken down into two semesters. Each semester will consist of nine weeks. Each week you will be asked to complete a minimum of 5 hours.

  • The first semester will consist of developing an understanding of what different cases consist of. During the first part of the internship program you will successfully accomplish individual steps required to complete a case. This includes translating new client consultations, translating official documents, gathering evidence to complete an application, etc.
