Koret Fellowship Program

Adrienne Garfias

Philosophy major, Class of 2019

I will be participating in an Unpaid Community-Based Summer Internship, serving as the Legal Assistant for ALMA (Apoyo Legal Migrante Associado). ALMA provides immigration legal services to immigrants, and specialize in helping low-income community members. While I will be doing general administrative duties such as making appointments, answering the phones, filing, scanning, and copying; this internship will also entail a number of duties specifically related to immigration law. I will be working with the clients by helping them gather all the documents required for their applications, working on FBI reports, translating legal documents from Spanish to English, drafting sworn declarations of clients, and helping the attorneys work on immigration applications such as: I-485, DACA, DACA renewal, I-130, I-918, and I-918A.
