Community Outreach

Scott Global Migration cares about our community!

Our founder, Lisa Scott, was the daughter of immigrants. As the first member of her family to graduate from high school, Lisa Scott recognizes the importance of education and the importance of serving the public interest.  In fact, Lisa Scott credits her pro bono efforts for helping her to launch her firm; Lisa’s first client matter in 1986 was pro bono.   As a result, our firm is deeply committed to serving the public interest through educational programs, community service activities, and pro bono involvement.  Whether we are adopting a family for the holidays, volunteering in court on behalf of low-income immigrants, or providing legal advice to international student populations, we are committed to fulfilling our professional and moral obligation to public service.

One of our recent educational efforts is to establish a Go-To Immigration Resource on our website.  Understanding that knowledge is important to growth, we offer lectures and panel discussions on all topics within U.S. immigration.  If you or your institution would like to learn more, simply Contact Us.

 

If you or your institution would like to learn more about booking one of our attorneys for a lecture or panel, Contact Us. 

 

Our senior attorney Lisa Scott has spoken at multiple universities, including DePaul and the University of Illinois, as well as conferences through AILA, NAFTA, ITT and more. Lisa is passionate about education and is always open to delivering her “Life After F-1” and “H-1B Wage Determination” presentation at educational institutions in order to equip students for the future post-graduation.
