Founded in 1946, the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) is a national bar association of attorneys who practice and teach immigration law. AILA Member attorneys represent tens of thousands of U.S. businesses and industries, foreign students, entertainers, athletes, and asylum seekers, often on a pro bono basis. AILA is an Affiliated Organization of the American Bar Association.

The New England Chapter of AILA is comprised of more than 650 attorney members who live and work in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. In 2015 at the AILA Annual Meeting and Conference, the New England Chapter was once again presented with AILA's Platinum Level award in recognition of the Chapter's unsurpassed leadership and service among AILA chapters.
