American Immigration Lawyers Association

New England Chapter

Founded in 1946, the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) is a national bar association of attorneys who practice and teach immigration law. AILA Member attorneys represent tens of thousands of U.S. businesses and industries, foreign students, entertainers, athletes, and asylum seekers, often on a pro bono basis. AILA is an Affiliated Organization of the American Bar Association.

The New England Chapter of AILA is comprised of more than 700 attorney members who practice in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. Our Chapter has received AILA’s Platinum Level award, the highest award possible, in recognition of the Chapter’s leadership and service since 2014.
