Event Description

What if your new client doesn't exactly remember what happened in their asylum interview, or lost all of their immigration paperwork when their basement flooded? What about if they were arrested once, a long time ago, but don't remember what ever came of the arrest? Join HIAS' Pro Bono and Partnerships Team for legal training to learn about when FOIA requests could be useful, what agencies to submit FOIA requests to, and why FOIA is an important tool for lawyers to use in zealously representing immigrants before U.S. immigration agencies. This training will be offered free of charge.  A recorded version of this training will be available on a later date. Many thanks to Fredrikson & Byron for their sponsorship of this training.
