Program Overview: Under President Obama's new immigration policy, thousands of young immigrants under age 31 who arrived in the U.S. as children can apply for "deferred action", which provides protection from deportation and permission to work legally. This will be life-changing for these young New Yorkers and we need skilled attorneys to help them apply.

Training topics will include:

  • Eligibility requirements
  • Risks and benefits of applying for DACA
  • Completing application forms and submitting supporting documents
  • Fees and fee exemptions
  • Clinic intake and exit procedures

To register, email contact information (name, address, and phone number) to Kate at kate@brooklynvlp.org or fax the attached form to (718) 624-3926.

Your Commitment: This course is offered FREE in exchange for your commitment to volunteer for a minimum of two three-hour clinic sessions sponsored by the presenting organizations. Clinics will be held in Brooklyn. Experienced attorneys receive additional MCLE credit for every 6 hours of eligible pro bono service.
