Border Justice Externships

BJI Externs work closely with expert immigration attorneys and UNM Law School faculty to develop and implement projects to serve the immigrant population, primarily focusing on immigration policy surrounding women and children. The Border Justice Externs receive guidance and supervision from law faculty and experienced immigration practitioners in addition to the supervising attorneys at the nonprofit legal services organizations in which they are placed.
