A WBF Publication
On April 24, the WBF and Victim Rights Law Center will co-host “Advanced Legal Strategies for Immigrant Survivors Facing Detention and Removal” with trainers from the Irish International Immigrant Center, Greater Boston Legal Services and National Immigration Project.
The goal of the training is to help those working with survivors develop strategies to support undocumented clients in the face of new immigration policies.
Comedy Night, 2017 will take place on May 18 at the Boston Harbor Hotel. Your support enables the WBF to sustain the pro bono programs that provide legal assistance each year to more than 2,000 low-income individuals, the majority of whom are women with young children.
Want to take a pro bono case? Please join the Family Law Project on April 12 at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP.
