Brief Writing for Asylum Case

Help our pro bono team save the life of an asylum seeker!

Posted February 2, 2021

Background & Context

We expand representation for asylum seekers by providing expert mentorship to pro bono attorneys working on asylum cases. The team on this case has a final hearing coming up in March, and they are looking for someone to help draft the brief given the tight turnaround time.

Immediate Problem

By writing the brief, you free up this pro bono team to do other trial prep work such as preparing documents, witness testimony, and other crucial aspects of the case.

Work & Deliverables

The pro bono attorney will need to draft a brief to be filed in an asylum case in immigration court.

VECINA

VECINA’s mission is to empower immigrant justice advocates through mentoring attorneys, educating communities, and mobilizing volunteers. Immigrants are facing one of the most difficult times in our nation’s history, so it’s more important than ever that immigrant justice advocates fight on behalf of immigrants’ rights. Immigrant justice advocates are battling fierce opposition, fatigue, and a constantly-changing landscape. Many attorneys are looking for ways to help but don’t have the tools necessary to provide effective representation. VECINA has expert mentors and training attorneys ready to equip pro bono attorneys with the necessary knowledge and skills to provide zealous advocacy.
