Pro Bono Projects
SIRR partners with local public interest groups to offer students several pro bono opportunities during the academic year, all focused on assisting immigrants and refugees navigate the complex and, often, daunting U.S. immigration system. Each pro bono program is unique, reflecting the diverse needs of immigrants and refugees, and student volunteers can expect to take on varying time commitments and responsibilities depending on the program. Participants in all of SIRR's programs are eligible for New York State Bar and Columbia Law School pro bono hours.
Below are examples of past SIRR pro bono projects. SIRR sends out emails regarding pro bono opportunities as they come up throughout the year, however the information below provides examples of the types of work that you might be able to do with local organizations.
