New Attorney Mentor 2010 – Present
Not only are we pleased to guide students who are interested in the legal field, but we have mentored new attorneys in the areas of immigration law, estate planning and business law on numerous occasions.
Internships 2011 – 2015
We have offered internships to high school students and recent law school graduates, who were interested in immigration law. Our internships are designed to expose our interns to the different areas of transnational based immigration law. We design complex, life-like scenarios for our interns to issue spot, research and prepare. We feel that this approach gives our interns valuable experience and allows them to gain exposure to immigration law so they can determine if this is an area they ultimately want to pursue.
AILA 5th Grader Immigration Essay Contest – 2010 – 2014
“Why I Am Glad America Is A Nation Of Immigrants.” Each year, the San Diego American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) participates in educating local fifth graders on the history and importance of immigration in America. The fifth graders then have the opportunity to write an essay on why they are glad America is a nation of immigrants. The San Diego chapter of AILA picks the top winning essays from the county, and the first prize winner goes on to compete at the national level. Each year, Ryan personally speaks to over 100 fifth graders to try and get them involved. She continues to volunteer her time on the essay committee because of the joy it brings her to speak to the children and hear their view points on immigration. If your school would like to have Ryan come and guest speak about immigration, please contact our office.
