    ijc logoLegal Services NYC is thrilled to have been selected as one of Immigrant Justice Corps' inaugural Justice Fellow Host Organizations. LSNYC will host two Justice Fellows for a period of two years. The Fellows will represent immigrants with the most complex cases that require lawyers to handle the case from start to finish, such as deportation defense and affirmative petitions for victims of crime, domestic violence and human trafficking, among others. The Justice Fellows will be primarily supervised by experienced LSNYC attorneys, with supplemental support from the IJC’s own supervisory staff.
