FREE CLE & PRO BONO TRAINING OPPORTUNITY
"Immigration Hearings 101: A Complete Tool Kit for Representing Children in Immigration Court"
On April 5 the American Bar Association Law Business Section is offering a free, two hour CLE accredited program on representing unaccompanied children through the immigration process. Upon completion of the training, attendees will be offered the opportunity to participate in the Kids in Need of Defense (KIND) project, representing unaccompanied children in immigration proceedings. KIND is an established pro bono project in Washington DC that will identify and screen clients, and provide mentors and support.
This CLE session taught by experienced immigration lawyers and trainers provides lawyers with the tools needed to competently represent children in the immigration courts. Panelists will discuss representing unaccompanied children in immigration proceedings, with an emphasis on T visas (trafficking), U visas (crime victims, including trafficking victims), SIJS visas (special immigrant juvenile status), and DACA (deferred action for childhood arrivals).
Upon completion of the training, attendees will be offered the opportunity to participate in immigration proceedings representing unaccompanied children, through established pro bono programs, in their respective states, that identify and screen clients, and provide mentors and support.
All Spring Meeting registrants are welcome to participate in this program.
There is no charge for this CLE, however space is limited so we do request you pre-register by sending an email to Leslie Archer at the ABA. For more information on KIND, please go to www.supportkind.org.
Special thanks to our host for the training, the law firm of Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson, LLP.
