Hofstra Law Students to Assist with Naturalization Process at
AILA Citizenship Day

Hofstra Law School, Hempstead, N.Y. Hofstra Law students will volunteer to help eligible immigrants become U.S. citizens at the annual American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) Long Island Citizenship Day on Saturday, April 16, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., at Hofstra Law School, Room 308.

Throughout the day, immigrants living on Long Island will receive assistance filling out forms and applying for naturalization (citizenship). The event is free and open to the public.

“Hofstra Law School recognizes the great contributions immigrants make to Long Island, our community and, above all, our nation,” said Lauris Wren, associate clinical professor and attorney-in-charge of the Asylum Clinic. “We are honored to now give back to them by helping them to realize their dreams of becoming American citizens.”

Citizenship applicants are asked to bring their Green Card, all passports since becoming permanent residents, all previous home addresses, their children’s addresses, dates of birth, their marriage/divorce history, their Selective Service registration number, if applicable, and any information about arrests, if applicable.  Applicants should go to room 308 at Hofstra Law School, located at 121 California Avenue, Hempstead, N.Y. 11549.

In conjunction with AILA’s New York chapter, several Hofstra Law student organizations are co-sponsoring the event.
