Firm Honored by CASA de Maryland
On June 5, CASA de Maryland, the immigrants advocacy and support organization that is the largest Latino and immigrant group in the state, honored Sandler Reiff Young & Lamb with its Justice Award for our Firm’s pro bono work on the Maryland DREAM Act. Together with a team from Arnold & Porter, the Firm represented “Dreamer” students and voters in the court battle to attempt to block a statewide referendum on the DREAM Act, which makes available to to undocumented immigrants in-state tuition at community colleges and the state University system if certain conditions are met. The court challenge did not succeed but Maryland voters approved the law in the 2012 general election. (The Firm also represented the ballot committee formed to persuade voters to approve the law).
