Why Impowerus?

The purpose of Impowerus is to bridge the gap between juveniles in need of legal aid and legal service provider by developing a new way to do pro bono work in immigration law. Impowerus seeks to improve the way the legal industry serves its customers. The increased caseload in immigration courts and the need for pro-bono legal services provide an opportunity for Impowerus to use technology to bring pro bono counsel to a vulnerable sector of our population – children.  Our vision is to have law firms – big and small – utilize this technology in a way that helps attorneys use their time effectively and efficiently. 

"Today, it is up to the legal community to respond and provide these children with the care and representation they deserve." -  Director of the ABA Commission on Immigration
