Introduction to Immigration Law Practice: A Course for New Practitioners

This two-day training provides the new immigration practitioner with an overview of immigration law concepts and the practice skills necessary to be an effective advocate. Through large group presentations, skits, and small group exercises, participants learn about rights and remedies under immigration law, the functions of the different government agencies that carry out immigration law, and the fundamentals of interviewing clients, preparing applications, and staying up-to-date on the law.  Topics covered include the family-based petition process, adjustment of status, consular processing, inadmissibility and deportability concepts and select grounds, naturalization and BIA accreditation.  The trainers for this program are CLINIC attorneys Sarah Bronstein and Susan Schreiber.
