The National Immigrant Justice Center (NIJC), a program of Heartland Alliance for Human Needs & Human Rights, promotes human rights and access to justice for immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers through legal services, policy reform, impact litigation, and public education. Throughout its 30-year history as an organization and nearly 25-year history of pro bono service, NIJC has been unique in blending individual client advocacy with broad-based systemic change.

NIJC serves more than 8,000 immigrants annually with the support of a professional legal staff and a network of over 1,500 pro bono attorneys.

NIJC maintains a 90 percent success rate in representing asylum seekers.

In FY 2008, NIJC successfully represented 14 individuals seeking protection in the United States before the U.S. Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals.
