Dear Friend of PAIR,
September kicks off our fall cycle for our two pro bono programs: PAIR's Rapid Response Team and Asylum Cohort!
We are always looking for dedicated lawyers to join our Rapid Response Team. Team members do limited scope representation, including representing detained asylum seekers at their bond hearings.
This entire month, we are hosting a Rapid Response Team training series. By joining one or more trainings, you will become part of the team and will be notified of upcoming limited scope cases that need placement.
Additionally, we are launching the Fall 2022 Asylum Cohort at the end of this month! The Asylum Cohort started this spring to give new PAIR pro bono attorneys substantive training in asylum law, as well as connect with a community of like-minded peers.
Each fall Asylum Cohort member also agrees to take a full representation asylum case by June 2023, and is assigned a PAIR staff attorney mentor for tailored support, every step of the way.
If you are interested in joining the fall Asylum Cohort and want to know more, you can either fill out this brief survey or just hit "reply" to this email directly. I will get back to you as soon as I can.
Finally, if you have attorney colleagues at your firm, organization, and/or network who may be interested—please feel free to forward this email along.
I look forward to hearing from you and seeing many of you later this month!
Pro Bono Involvement Coordinator at PAIR
