Catholic Legal Immigration Network

Catholic Legal Immigration Network (CLINIC) is a non-profit legal support organization incorporated in 1988 to serve the nation's most vulnerable immigrants, including refugees/asylum-seekers, detainees, families in need of reunification, laborers abused in the workplace, and survivors of violence.

BIA Pro Bono Project

The BIA Pro Bono Project, CLINIC's partnership with the Board of Immigration Appeals, is one of the nation's most successful pro bono initiatives. Through this project, CLINIC works with more than 400 attorneys and law school clinics to provide pro bono legal representation to indigent immigrants. Through a network of committed volunteers, trainers and mentors, the BIA Project facilitates access to justice, a critical component to safeguarding the rights of vulnerable asylum-seekers and long-time lawful permanent residents. For more information or to volunteer for this project, contact CLINIC staff attorney and BIA Pro Bono Project Coordinator Lauren Sullivan at
