Immigration Law Training for Non-Immigration Lawyers
AILA (American Immigration Lawyers Association) is leading an effort to train non-immigration lawyers how to assist victims of immigration fraud. Federal, state and local authorities have been cracking down on “notarios” and others engaged in the unauthorized practice of law, resulting in many immigrants needing pro bono assistance from lawyers who can help them with their matters. The two-day intensive training session at the City Bar takes place on August 17 and 18 in the evenings. The training session is the first step of a major clinical initiative to connect underserved immigrants with appropriate pro bono legal assistance. If you are interested, follow this link for additional details and the registration form. Registration deadline is August 12.
