NSU Law is partnering with the College of Psychology, Americans for Immigrant Justice, Catholic Legal Services, Office of New Americans, Florida Immigrant Coalition, Haitian Lawyers Association, Hispanic Unity, and Legal Aid Service of Broward County to provide free immigration legal screenings and community IDs to the community.
With the help of partnering student organizations including: the Evening Law Student Association (ELSA), the Foreign Lawyers Association at NSU (FLAN), the Immigration Law Organization (ILO), the Journal of International & Comparative Law (ILSA), and the Public Interest Law Society (PILS); this pro bono immigration clinic will offer participants the chance to learn more about how immigration law affects them and their families with Know Your Rights Presentations. Participants will have the opportunity to receive a free consultation with an immigration attorney. This free consultation will be used to determine whether participants in the clinic are eligible for any immigration relief and legal representation.
Additionally, qualified participants will also have the opportunity to receive a Community ID. Florida state-issued photo identifications can be difficult to obtain for some Broward County residents. A Community ID provides photo identification for the Broward resident who may have limited access to government issued ID card. A photo identification is critical for everyday life and the care of loved ones.
