    Immigration Law Section Pro Bono Training

    The Immigration Section of the Vermont Bar Association is coordinating a training for attorneys interested in providing pro bono services to immigrants in need of legal assistance.  The Vermont Bar Association strongly supports access to legal services as a core part of our mission to serve the public and the profession.  From our Board President Mike Kennedy: “The Vermont Bar Association has long supported access to legal services, including through its many pro bono programs. The VBA’s members have a long history of providing pro bono services to those in need.”  We endeavor to facilitate assisting low-income persons, who often have no choice but to navigate the legal system unrepresented. 

    Attorneys who wish to participate in the Immigration Section training are asked to e-mail and specify “Immigration Law” in the subject line.  Those attorneys will be notified when training details are finalized.  VBA Members will also receive updates in the Immigration Section online community.
