11 July 2014
Mayer Brown Article
On June 12, 2014, approximately 25 volunteer lawyers, summer associates and interpreters from seven law firms attended a U-visa clinic hosted by Mayer Brown to help applicants complete and file their U-visa petitions. A U-visa is a form of immigration relief available to crime victims who have been subjected to substantial physical and/or psychological abuse, and who have cooperated with law enforcement in the investigation and/or prosecution of the crimes. An approved U-visa provides these victims with legal status and work authorization for themselves and their children, as well as a path to permanent residency and, ultimately, US citizenship. This was the second pro bono U-visa clinic Mayer Brown has held in partnership with The New York Legal Assistance Group.
