Appellate Immigration Pro Bono Opportunities

Event Description

Deadline to Register: November 26, 2018

Immigration-related litigation is booming in our nation’s immigration courts. Occasionally, federal district courts and state appellate courts must also decide issues relating to or impacting immigration law. Asylum-seekers and immigrants seeking relief are often in need of appellate pro bono representation before the Board of Immigration Appeals and federal and state appellate courts. Join experienced public interest immigration lawyers as well as volunteer attorneys, and learn about opportunities for you to serve as a pro bono appellate lawyer.

Lunch and registration will begin at 11:45 am. The program will begin at noon.
