Navigating the U.S. Immigration System for Immigrant Youth: September 29th

By April 6, 2016Counselor

Building off of my April 18th CLE with Claire Thomas on Representing Unaccompanied Children in Immigration Court, Rebecca McBride and I will be providing a training for attorneys on special issues to be aware of when working with immigrant youth on September 29th at Lawline. We’ll be discussing the various legal definitions of a “child”, special protections under U.S. immigration law for youth, recent efforts to expand protections for immigrant youth, barriers to effective representation, and we’ll be taking your questions. And for attorneys interested in finding resources on the topic or in donating your time, please visit Atlas DIY to learn more.
