ABA Commission on Immigration offers students "hands-on" experience with people in detention

Amanda Robert for the ABA Journal reports on great opportunities being provided to college and law students by the ABA Commission on Immigration’s Detention and Legal Orientation Program Information Line.  Student interns help with calls from immigrants and refugees who are detained in more than 200 facilities across the country.  They also help pull together information that the detained noncitizens need for their cases, such as how to apply for asylum or how to appeal a denial of asylum. These services are free for detainees who reach the information line.
