The National Immigration Project of the National Lawyers Guild (NIP NLG) is at the front lines of advancing immigrant rights by ensuring justice and equal treatment.

The push by the organization also focuses on ensuring fairness within the criminal justice system and entrenching favorable social policies. The National Immigration Project has been operating for over 45 years, powered by well thought out policies and highly dedicated team of experts, ready to respond to cases of unlawful immigration enforcement and other injustices.

The National Immigration Project provides technical support to legal practitioners, immigrant communities and community focused organizations in their efforts to support their agenda of action,

The Boston, MA based organization also provides training to its members through webinars and seminars. The 4 part webinars training focuses on key issues such as abuses committed against noncitizens and ensuring law enforcement accountability through the litigation process.

The seminars, on the other hand, are designed to sensitize the attorney’s about the innovative legal strategies for defending immigrant rights. The seminars are conducted via the Continuing Legal Education (CLE) platform.

The successes the organization has achieved over the years in promoting progressive, cutting edge advocacy and legal representation are attributed to the support of thousands of supporters, through their tax deductions and membership contributions. NIP NLG members and supporters come from across the US; they include community groups, judges, Jailhouse lawyers and students.
