Butler Rubin Hosts DACA Clinic

pro bono

CHICAGO, April 18, 2018Butler Rubin hosted a legal clinic on April 16, 2018 to renew the DACA (“Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals”) status and obtain extended work authorization for ten clients referred to the firm by the National Immigrant Justice Center (“NIJC”).  While the President cancelled the DACA program, courts have enjoined that action and permitted prior DACA recipients to renew their status.  The firm is honored to work with these clients and NIJC and has a deep commitment to pro bono service for the immigrant community.

Butler Rubin hosted one of the first DACA clinics in 2013 and has employed a DACA recipient as a Summer Associate at the firm.  The firm believes that no law firm is too small to engage in pro bono.
