Please join us to learn more about the U.S. immigration system, obtaining advocacy experience, and providing valuable pro bono legal representation for a vulnerable child facing deportation. The presentation will cover an overview of unaccompanied immigrant children and the laws that affect them; working with child clients and interpreters; family court and immigration proceedings for Special Immigrant Juvenile Status cases in Maryland; asylum law; and cases available for placement. This introductory training is required for new KIND pro bono attorneys prior to taking on their first KIND case, but there is no requirement of accepting a case to attend the training. The training will take place via Zoom. Please RSVP by Friday, October 16.
