The University of Baltimore School of Law office for Kids In Need of Defense—a national organization that provides quality pro bono representation to immigrant children in removal proceedings by training and mentoring pro bono attorneys—will host a pro bono training opportunity for UB alumni on Monday, Dec. 16 from noon to 2 p.m. in Room 102 of the school's John and Frances Angelos Law Center.
The School of Law demonstrated its commitment to pro bono work by giving a permanent home to KIND's Baltimore office in the law center. All graduates of the School of Law who are interested in immigration law may learn about pro bono opportunities at KIND's introductory training.
The brown-bag lunchtime training will cover KIND's mission, an introduction to the children served by the organization, its mentoring process, tips for working with child clients and survivors of trauma, as well as an overview of basic immigration law and common forms of relief available to children. Summaries of available cases for pro bono placement will be provided.
Read about the work of KIND and the School of Law's Immigrant Rights Clinic in the debut edition of Baltimore Law, the official magazine of the UB School of Law.
