This program has been recognized with Pro Bono Awards from The Missouri Bar, Kansas Bar Association, University of Missouri Kansas City School of Law Foundation, and the American Immigration Lawyers Association.
Why We Do Pro Bono
Leyla McMullen, MDIVANI Business Immigration Lawyer:
“When I applied to law school, as part of my application I was asked to write an essay about why I wanted to be a lawyer. As a first generation immigrant (I moved to the US from Argentina when I was 13 years old), one of the things I mentioned I wanted to do with my law degree was to provide free legal help to new immigrants who did not speak English fluently. My essay was chosen by a KU Law donor who provided funds for me to have a full ride scholarship. I have never forgotten the amazing opportunity I was given. I am now blessed to work at a law firm where pro bono work is valued and encouraged, so now I get to give back to the community and make good on the things I said I would do with my law degree.
It is important to point out that when we help a victim of a crime attain her legal status, we are not only helping that person, but we are also helping our community as a whole. For example, last month, I had the honor of working with a very brave rape victim. This woman’s testimony will help prosecutors put away a very dangerous man who has been charged with more than sixteen felonies. She is helping make our community safer, and I am happy to be the attorney who gets to help her attain legal status so she can be in the United States legally to testify in court.”
