Pro Bono and Philanthropy partner Allegra Rich and Seyfarth's SeyfarthLean initiative was featured in an ABA Journal article which profiles the results of a collaborative project between Seyfarth and the non-profit Kids in Need of Defense (KIND), a national legal aid organization that helps children without a parent or legal guardian navigate the immigration justice system.
Allegra and a team of Seyfarth attorneys collaborated with KIND to develop an extranet and collection of process maps that will help the organization represent some of the more than 8,000 unaccompanied immigrant children who are placed in federal custody and required to face immigration proceedings.
“The really cool thing about this project was the opportunity to help the entire operation and to feel that we were making a difference at a broader level,” Allegra says. “Our hope is that these process improvements ... will allow KIND to serve more unaccompanied immigrant children, and to recruit, train and mentor a larger pool of attorneys.”
