About Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota

A non-profit organization serving immigrant and refugee families and individuals in immigration matter throughout Minnesota


Pro Bono Project Assisstant

June 2022 - August 2022 Northfield, MN
“ILCM is an extremely welcoming work environment. The team seems to be genuinely interested in everyone's well-being and, while you will have plenty of opportunities to challenge yourself, they will never ask you to go beyond your capabilities. It is also a holistic learning experience, so though you will certainly learn a lot about immigration law and policy, you will also learn about nonprofit work, work-life balance, law school and so much more. ”

Detention Intern

May 2020 - July 2020 Saint Paul, MN
“I learned so much at this internship. As a detention intern I answered calls from detained immigrants and their family members for four hours a week, and for the rest of the time I helped the four Detention Project attorneys with their cases. I greatly benefitted from the commitment to teaching at the Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota (ILCM). Every attorney who. I helped was excited to engage with me and help me understand the process better. My weekly check-ins with my supervisor were a great place to fill in new gaps that I'd discovered in my knowledge, and I felt incredibly supported every week. I especially appreciate the ILCM's commitment to emotional support as you experience second-hand trauma from clients and learn about so many ways that people are struggling. The ILCM created a supportive environment in which I could contribute to their work, learn about the US immigration system, and formulate new ideas and beliefs.”
