Episode Notes

Legal Talk Network Host Adriana Linares and Producer Laurence Colletti interview the director of the Commission on Immigration, Meredith Linsky, and Managing Attorney at ProBAR Children’s Project Meghan Johnson at the 2015 ABA Midyear Meeting. Together, they discuss the influx of unaccompanied minors coming to the United States from violent conditions in Central American countries. Lindsky explains that the ABA Commission on Immigration focuses on finding, training, and placing immigration lawyers where they are most needed. Johnson describes how ProBAR Children’s Project works to educate the children, many of whom are seeking refugee status, and all of whom are subjected to horrible conditions. Both encourage any interested lawyers to sign up for their programs.
