Representing Asylum Seekers

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.
