The AILA Military Assistance Program (MAP) is a collaborative effort between the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) and the Legal Assistance Offices (LAO) of the United States military Judge Advocate General's (JAG) Corps. The LAOs provide free assistance to active duty service-members and their families in order to maintain the highest level of readiness possible in the event that a military member is deployed. Recently, however, JAG attorneys have been inundated with complex immigration legal questions. To resolve these cases successfully, they often need the assistance of seasoned immigration attorneys. AILA MAP has brought these two groups together to form a truly dynamic and effective partnership.

Since the inception of this worthy program in 2008, our priority has been to provide invaluable resources, knowledgeable pro bono legal counsel, and peace of mind to these courageous men and women of the United States Armed Forces while honoring the selfless commitment which they have made to the continued protection of our nation and the freedoms we enjoy on a daily basis.
