The goal of the Multicultural Legal Services Program is to provide legal services in the areas of immigration and family law to immigrant and refugee victims of domestic violence and human trafficking. We are the only agency in North Texas providing free, comprehensive legal representation in both family law and immigration.
Each LANWT branch office has a Pro Bono Coordinator(Equal Justice Volunteer Program Coordinator), who is responsable for managing pro bono opportunities for volunteer lawyers. Volunteer opportunities vary somewhat, but all LANWT offices conduct clinics that are staffed in part by volunteer lawyers. All clients of the pro bono programs must meet LANWT eligibility requirements.
RAICES has opportunites for interested attorneys to be matched with clients in need of representation in their immigration matters, providing sample filings and mentorship throughout all cases. We also have opportunities to get involved in advocacy issues surrounding immigration reform and detention policies.
