Our Social Impact

Your Go-To Immigration Resource

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. 

She started her solo practice with a pro bono case in 1986. For over 30 years, her passion for immigration and helping people has led her to accept many other pro bono cases and to serve the community in many different ways.

Scott Migration Law Group is proud of their social impact and we would like to share it with you.

In addition to helping foreign individuals to work in the U.S. and achieve their American dream, bringing talents to the U.S. economy, we help families to be together and share our knowledge with our community.

Our dedication to our community sets us apart.



Pro Bono Practice

Scott Migration Law Group regularly volunteers in court on behalf of low-income immigrants without fee.

The term “pro bono” comes from the Latin pro bono publico, which means “for the public good.” With our pro bono practice, we aim at promoting justice and making it equally accessible to all people.

Lisa Scott is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) and serves as a pro bono attorney for the Chicago Volunteer Legal Services (CVLS) Immigration Clinic.



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.

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


Over the years, it has been very important to Lisa Scott to be a mentor to newly admitted lawyers through American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), and she also welcomes young interns to Scott Global Migration Law Group through a partnership with Chicago Public Schools.
