The National Immigration Project is a national membership organization of lawyers, law students, legal workers, advocates, and jailhouse lawyers working to defend and extend the rights of all noncitizens in the United States, regardless of immigration status. We pursue all forms of legal advocacy on behalf of immigrants and provide technical assistance and support to legal practitioners, community-based immigrant organizations, and advocates seeking and working to advance the rights of noncitizens.
NIPNLG periodically invites second- or third-year law students and recent law graduates to apply for a sponsorship opportunity for Skadden, EJW, OSJI, and other national or law school fellowships. We are especially interested in projects that address border enforcement and that challenge illegal entry and reentry prosecutions for asylum seekers, as well as projects that involve community-led and community-focused immigrant rights initiatives.
All legal fellow positions are currently filled. Please check back in the future for any fellowship opportunities we may have.
The Michael Maggio Immigrants’ Rights Summer Fellowship
The Michael Maggio Immigrants’ Rights Summer Fellowship was established jointly in 2009 by the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), the Center for Human Rights and Constitutional Law (CHRCL), and the National Immigration Project of the National Lawyers Guild (NIPNLG), to commemorate the life and legal contributions of Michael Maggio.
The deadline has passed for this year, but please check the website at http://maggiofellowship.org/ for future fellowships.
The National Immigration Project is seeking applicants for legal internships. For 50 years, the National Immigration Project has persistently promoted justice and equality of treatment in all areas of immigration law, the criminal justice system, and policies related to immigration. We provide technical assistance and support to legal practitioners, immigrant communities, community-based organizations, and all advocates seeking and working to advance the rights of noncitizens. Since its founding, the National Immigration Project has served as a progressive source for cutting-edge, advocacy-oriented legal support on issues critical to immigrant rights. Our success is built upon the membership and tax-deductible contributions of thousands of supporters nationwide.
