On March 8, 2018, from 1:00 - 4:00 pm, NIJC will conduct a training for pro bono attorneys interested in representing asylum seekers – including immigrant children and detained immigrants – before the asylum office and the immigration court.  Illinois CLE credit will be available, but space is limited!  Please contact Anna Sears at to RSVP or with any questions.


Please note that all attorneys who do not already have an NIJC asylum matter must commit to accepting a new asylum matter within three months of the training.  To best benefit from the training, NIJC encourages attorneys to accept a new asylum matter prior to attending the training itself.  Please click here to learn more about NIJC's pro bono opportunities and to determine whether an asylum case might be a good fit for you.


Attorneys who are unable to attend in-person can participate via webinar.  Please click here to access the webinar registration.  Please note that NIJC strongly encourages NIJC pro bono attorneys to attend a live version of the training, rather than the webinar.  CLE credit is only available for in-person attendees.
