FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do you have short-term volunteer opportunities in the field where I can have direct contact with clients? Thank you for your support of IJM and interest in partnering with us. One of the unique aspects of IJM's work is that we provide on-going professional investigation, legal and social work services for our clients. Due to the nature of our work, we do not have short-term opportunities for those who desire direct contact with our clients.

Do you have pro-bono opportunities for lawyers who would like to assist while remaining in the U.S.? Due to the nature and location of our casework, it is rare that we can offer pro-bono opportunities for lawyers who hope to assist us while remaining within the United States. Our greatest volunteer need is for lawyers to participate in our Legal Fellowship program, which requires a commitment of 10 to 12 months. The long-term commitment is needed so people can learn an entirely new legal system and adapt to a new culture in the developing world. We also invite you to spread awareness at your law firm about IJM, advocate or fundraise in your community.
