About MILLA

Mission Statement

The Michigan Immigration and Labor Law Association (MILLA) is a student organization at the University of Michigan Law School. We engage in community-based advocacy and organizing on labor, immigration, and low-wage and immigrant worker issues in Michigan. We coordinate the Michigan Unemployment Insurance Project, make “Know Your Rights” presentations to inform communities of workplace and immigrants’ rights, collaborate with local legal advocates and community organizations, and support immigrant and workers’ rights movements on campus and in the community.
