Manatt is proud to join more than 130 major law firms and companies to help Ukrainian nationals receive access to a special form of immigration relief in the United States known as Temporary Protected Status (TPS).
Led by Lawyers for Good Government (L4GG) and Kirkland & Ellis LLP, the coalition has formed a nationwide pro bono remote legal clinic, known as TPS Pro Bono Project for Ukraine, to help eligible Ukrainian nationals currently in the U.S. apply for TPS relief while their home country is deemed unsafe. This special immigration status will allow them to temporarily live and work in the U.S. rather than return to Ukraine if and when their U.S. immigration status lapses.
Through this program, Manatt professionals will work alongside more than 2,400 pro bono attorney volunteers, helping to answer legal questions and provide free assistance to Ukrainians seeking to file for TPS.
The TPS Pro Bono Project for Ukraine is an initiative of L4GG’s Project Corazon, an immigrants’ rights program defending the rights of asylum seekers and other migrants, with a focus on serving particularly vulnerable asylum seekers, such as those with medical or psychological conditions, disabilities, LGBTQIA+ individuals, and third-language speakers.
