Internship: Immigration Law Project

Safe Horizon’s Immigration Law Project (ILP) provides free and low-cost services to immigrant victims of domestic violence, crime, trafficking and torture in immigration proceedings. ILP has represented thousands of survivors of intimate partner and gender-based violence, helping them towards a pathway of obtaining residency or citizenship in the United States. Specifically, we represent clients in U visa applications, Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), self-petitions, asylum claims, removal defense cases, applications for permanent residency and citizenship.
