Barack Ferrazzano and the National Immigrant Justice Center (NIJC) collaborated for the second year in a row to provide pro bono legal services to Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) applicants ("DREAMers") at a renewal clinic hosted by the Firm. Through the Firm’s clinics, Barack Ferrazzano attorneys and paralegals have served dozens of DREAMers to help them renew DACA status, allowing them to remain legally in the United States, renew their work authorization, and pursue their education and professional careers.
