CLE: Asylum Step by Step: "Getting the Story Out"

Thursday January 23 , 2014

Asylum clients are like no other clients in the legal system. An asylum client's experiences and trauma span the globe and involve some of the worst human rights violations of our time. Successfully communicating their story poses unique and fascinating challenges for advocates. From filing the application to preparing for an immigration interview, an asylum applicant faces an intensive and daunting immigration process that many worthy applicants cannot navigate.

Asylum Step By Step is a four-part series designed to provide volunteer attorneys with skills and techniques necessary to successfully represent asylum seekers, to help avoid common pitfalls, and to give advocates an opportunity to learn from experienced attorneys.

This session trains advocates to adequately prepare and conduct successful client interviews with individuals that have experienced significant violence and may be suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

You may sign up for one or all of the sessions with The Advocates for Human Rights.
