The Vanderbilt University Law School Immigration Clinic and law professor Karla M. McKanders were the recipient of the American Immigration Lawyers Association’s MidSouth Pro Bono Award for their work in finding pro bono attorneys for individuals arrested in the Immigration Customs Enforcement raid in Morristown last year. The AILA MidSouth Pro Bono Champions Award recognizes individuals or organizations who "… promote justice, advocate for fair and reasonable immigration law and policy, advance the quality of immigration and nationality law and practice, and enhance the professional development of its members."
