Detention and Legal Orientation Program Information Line Internship

Website American Bar Association

Immigration legal services for people in detention facilities.

The ABA Commission on Immigration’s Detention & Legal Orientation Program (LOP) Information Line provides legal information on immigration matters to callers in ICE custody throughout the nation. Our goal is to ensure that the due process rights of immigrants are respected. We aim to provide vital information and support to immigrants and refugees detained by ICE and promote pro bono practices across the country. People in ICE custody are facing barriers in countless ways including limited access to information and lawyers, limited access to their family and friends, limited access to financial support, language barriers, and overall dehumanizing conditions. The Information Line aims to orient callers about the immigration process and their rights by providing information to callers in their native language by phone and by mail and directing them toward potential legal help in their location.

We accept applications on a rolling basis and are currently recruiting for  Fall ‘24 and Spring ‘25. This internship is best suited for law students, recent graduates up to one year out of college, and third and fourth-year undergraduates. Spanish fluency is preferred but not required.
