Defending Immigration Removal Proceedings 2014

Why you should attend

With more than 300,000 deportation and removal cases initiated by U.S. immigration authorities each year, immigrants in the United States are in need of competent and knowledgeable representation in this important area of law. Over half of those facing removal proceedings are unrepresented, and those without legal representation face a significantly higher risk of removal, regardless of eligibility for relief.

At this comprehensive program, panels of nationally-recognized experts will provide a nuts and bolts overview of how to most effectively defend immigrants facing removal proceedings.

What you will learn

  • Recent developments in asylum law
  • The nuts and bolts of cancellation of removal
  • How to represent clients in detention
  • Representing the criminal defendant in removal proceedings
  • Representing children in removal proceedings and Violence Against Women Act claims
  • Ethical issues in removal proceedings

This program will benefit lawyers who currently represent or are interested in representing immigrant clients facing removal proceedings.

All cancellations received 3 business days prior to the program will be refunded 100%. If you do not cancel within the allotted time period, payment is due in full. You may substitute another individual to attend the program at any time.
