About the Role

The Immigration Attorney will be joining a group of exceptional public interest attorneys to directly impact the lives of immigrant children looking for safety and security.

Positions are open both in the NYC and Long Island Team.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Provide direct representation to Safe Passage Project clients;
  • Supervise and mentor pro bono attorneys with Safe Passage Project;
  • Screen immigrant children and assist in the organization of Safe Passage Project’s legal screenings;
  • Provide detailed reporting statistics on each case mentored and represented directly.

Qualifications: The strongest candidates for this position will have most, though likely not all, of the following qualifications and characteristics:

  • J.D. degree and admission to New York State Bar;
  • Two (2) years of family law or immigration law experience;
  • Excellent written, analytical, oral, organizational and time management skills;
  • Ability to work independently as well as collaboratively on an interdisciplinary team in a fast-paced, high intensity environment;
  • Fluency in Spanish is required;
  • Experience working with diverse communities and/or with children;
  • A commitment to the work of Safe Passage Project and readiness to grow and learn with the Safe Passage Project team.

Compensation & Benefits

Safe Passage Project offers competitive salary and benefits, commensurate with experience and skills. In addition, Safe Passage Project offers a flexible work environment, including the opportunity to work from home, flexible hours, unlimited time off, and 12 weeks paid family leave. The team works on a beautiful campus at a terrific office location in Tribeca and every employee has access to support for professional development. Reflected in our diverse Senior Leadership team, Safe Passage Project is proud to have a top-down, bottom-up commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Company Profile
Safe Passage Project provides free lawyers to 800 child refugees who are being deported. Many children embark alone on the long and dangerous journey to the United States seeking protection. They are fleeing trauma such as gang violence and recruitment, abuse, and sexual assault. In 2017, the government reported that they apprehended over 40,000 immigrant children seeking entry to the United States. Closer to home, the New York Immigration Court has more than 15,000 cases involving children on its docket. Immigrant children are not afforded free legal representation by the government, regardless of their age. As a result, more than half of immigrant children must go through immigration proceedings without the aid of a lawyer. Unable to effectively argue their claim for the legal protections they may qualify for, more than 80% of these children are issued deportation orders. To many, this means returning to the danger from which they fled. This is where Safe Passage Project steps in, providing free legal assistance to these refugee and immigrant children in New York City and Long Island who are facing removal despite their strong legal claim to stay in the United States. Safe Passage Project is growing rapidly; we are currently the largest provider of free lawyers to immigrant children in New York State. Since 2015, our funding has increased more than sevenfold. Safe Passage Project is an equal opportunity employer. Women, people of color, LGBTQ people, veterans and people with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
