This is the second webinar in the "Selected Issues in the Immigration of Children" series.

What should you do when your derivative child client wants to keep inadmissibility information away from his parent, who is also your client? What should you do when a child is eligible for U status but has a parent who does not want him/her to proceed with the case? This webinar will explore common ethical challenges that arise in the course of representing children, using the American Bar Association Model Rules of Professional Conduct as a guide. Topics will include competency and capacity, joint representation, conflicts of interest related to social workers and parents, and others. Much of the webinar will be dedicated to analyzing real case scenarios. The presenters for this webinar are CLINIC Attorneys Sarah Bronstein and Martin Gauto.
