The Cambridge Commission on Immigrant Rights & Citizenship (CIRC),through and in collaboration with the De Novo Center for Justice and Healing, provides a free monthly Virtual Immigration Legal Screening Clinic. The Clinic is seeking volunteer immigration attorneys.

The Clinic is held virtually on the third Wednesday of every month. Callers leave a message with their information. De Novo staff screen the messages and assign callers to volunteer attorneys based on practice area and language, when possible. Volunteer attorneys then provide brief advice, screen for immigration legal needs, and refer to additional legal resources if appropriate. De Novo immigration attorneys provide supervisory support. Interpretation is available whenever needed.

We ask that volunteer attorneys have at least two years of experience in immigration law.
