Representing Asylum Seekers

United States


This webinar is being offered for free to current HIAS and KIND pro bono attorneys, and to attorneys who accept at least one pro bono matter from HIAS or KIND before August 2019.  Please register here.

HIAS is excited to be offering a CLE training, "Representing Asylum Seekers" in partnership with Kids in Need of Defense (KIND).  Pro bono attorneys will learn how to represent families who were forcibly separated and are now seeking asylum in the United States.  We will provide an overview of asylum law including the affirmative and defensive procedures, discuss best practices for Individual Hearings and other EOIR appearances, review tips for evidence collection and submission, and provide an update on recent legal challenges. 

This CLE will be offered as a Webinar, and is available to attorneys in both the New York City area and the Washington, DC Metro area.  Login information will be circulated to registered attendees ahead of the training.
