Center for New Americans logo


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. Members from each partner institution serve on the Center’s advisory committee.

The Law School thanks our partners for helping to create the Center, and for their ongoing collaboration in public service to New Americans.
