On March 1, 2018, from 9:00 - 11:00 A.M., NIJC will conduct a training for pro bono attorneys interested in Representing Detained Immigrants Seeking Waivers of Deportation.
This form of relief helps protect family unity and prevents long-term immigrants from deportation and permanent separation from family members. The training will address the substantive law governing these waivers, including establishing an individual’s eligibility for the waivers, and provide a roadmap for preparing these cases for trial before the immigration court. New associates are particularly encouraged to attend. Attorneys attending this training should be aware that due to the expedited nature of detained immigration cases, it is unusual to have a high volume of a particular type of case available for pro bono representation at any given time. Instead, as new waiver of deportation cases for detained immigrants become available, NIJC will contact attorneys who attended this training to determine whether they can assist one of the detained immigrants with a viable claim.
Illinois CLE credit will be available, but space is limited! Please contact Jesse Johnson at email@example.com
