People and Partners

The Center for New Americans was designed as a partnership among the Law School, the pro bono programs of three of Minnesota’s preeminent law firms, and our state’s leading immigration non-profit service providers. Through regular consultation and collaboration, the Center works with its partners and other community allies to understand community needs and to deliver high quality legal services.
